The history of the Anthony Attruia jewelry brand began in the late 1980s in Johnston, Rhode Island and spanned about two decades.
Born in 1962 to Madeleine S. Attruia (1938–2011) and Michael J. Attruia (1930–1991), Anthony Vincent Attruia learned jewelry business from his mother. Notably, Madeleine Attruia (also known as Lynn Castle) co-owned the Castle Jewelry Company in Providence, Rhode Island for 35 years.
Attruia became known for his lustrous crystal pins with Christmas, patriotic and floral designs, which are rare and collectible today.
Traditionally, Anthony Vincent Attruia used gold and silver tone metal alloys and multicolored Swarovski crystals. He marked his products with the word “Attruia” and an engraved symbolic image of the castle on an oval cartouche.
