Monk FactsInspired by the rosaries that no self-respecting Roman catholic could do without, this hand-carved coral lapel button is a perfect example of the adage “It’s all in the details”. The chain of coral beads features a button at one end and two lucky Neapolitan charms at the other, all attached with gold thread. Yet, while the small button fits through your lapel hole, the chain of beads leads down into the breast pocket, where the lucky ‘corno’ is kept safe. Only those in the know, or those observant enough to recognize the beauty and refinement of the button and beads, will notice the delightful accessory adorning the jacket; it is ‘stealth-style’ par excellence. The story of Rubinacci Napoli dates back to the early 19th Century, when Mariano Rubinacci began trading silk with the far east.
