There is a great story behind these two pendants. After 42 years Brian discovered his biological father. The date when he found out about his father is engraved in the cross. His father’s initial is “A” hence the letters on the pendants. He specifically asked to have the pendants made “beaten” probably symbolizing some difficulties. On the other side of the cross there is the phrase “New Beginning” in Italian. Brian is an accomplished designer so the pendants were his idea.
