For those unfamiliar with RockLove Jewelry you definitely need to check them out. The brainchild of designer and CEO Allison Cimino, the designs featured are unique in their incredible attention to detail and focus on fandom culture. represented in the collection are the Armorer from The Mandalorian, Princess Leia and the fan favorite – Ahsoka Tano!
This character is very special to RockLove. When the first Star Wars collection launched last Summer it included a ring shaped like Ahsoka’s montrals. Cimino told StarWars.com that the original idea came to her in a dream. Then, here and Ashley Eckstein (owner of Her Universe) worked together to create the piece which included the inscription “Ahsoka Lives” hidden inside the band.
The collection has now been expanded to include a bangle bracelet and a medallion. Cimino says of the necklace, “Sleek and graphic, Ahsoka’s montrals and facial markings are naturally fashionable, yet only recognizable to an Ahoska fan.” The necklace is handcrafted in solid sterling silver and then filled with grey-blue, orange and white hand-painted enamel. It was created as a inclusive way to allow fans to celebrate their love for their character.
“Rings and bracelets typically require various sizes, as is the nature of cast precious metal jewelry. Meanwhile, the Ashoka medallion is an adjustable 24 inches long so that it flatteringly fits everybody and every body,” Cimino says.
If you flip the medallion over it includes a quote from Ahsoka: “A new day, a new beginning.” Eckstein says that she loves this mantra and has it on display in her home. “It’s a reminder that each new day brings hope and a fresh start. This has become one of my personal mantras. I wanted to put this quote on the back of the necklace pendant to remind anyone who wears it that every new day is a gift,” Eckstein said.
For the bangle, it was designed to complement the set in a fashionable yet minimalist way. It features the characters distinctive head and tail pattern and has a subtle yet empowering message on the inside. It reads “Never give up hope, no matter how dark things seem.” This statement is taken from Star Wars: The Clone Wars.
The Ahsoka bangle was conceived to complement the set, a fashionable yet minimalist way to incorporate the character’s distinctive head tail pattern while once again adding a subtle, empowering message. This time, the inside of the handcrafted bracelet — made from durable artisan brass, plated in polished silver, and hand-painted in premium enamel — is inscribed with the quote that starts the episode of Star Wars: The Clone Wars, “The Wrong Jedi.” It says: “Never give up hope, no matter how dark things seem.”
“This is my favorite “Fortune Cookie” from The Clone Wars and I feel that it perfectly represents Ahsoka,” Eckstein says. “To me, Ahsoka represents hope and light. Even in the darkest times, she is always looking toward the light and choosing to be hopeful. At the end of the episode, Ahsoka walked away from everything she knew because she believed that it was the right thing to do. This moment resonated so deeply with me and with fans all over the world. This mantra is the perfect reminder for the wearer to be like Ahsoka!”
Cimino created a deay-wear necklace version of the Medal of Yavin. This is a symbol of hope that is awarded to Luke Skywalker and Han Solo by Princess Leia in Star Wars: A New Hope. It is a cherished family heirloom throughout the end of the Skywalker saga. “The Medal of Yavin is an incredibly sentimental piece,” Cimino says, “a testament to bravery and heroism, to those bringing freedom and hope to the galaxy.” You also see it decades later in The Rise of Skywalker when Maz Kanata gives Chewbacca Han’s medal after Leia’s death.
This stunning pendant is sculpted in artisan brass and plated in satin-finished yellow gold. On the back is the inscription “Give Leia my love.” These words come from the latest film and are quote from Lando.
Cimino translated the helmet of the Armorer in The Mandalorian into a sterling silver and antiqued yellow gold ring. Cimino says of the piece, The Armorer is a badass female leader who wields hammers and smelts metal. I’ve never related to a character more!” Cimino adds, “This ring was a joy to create. We worked very hard perfecting the sculpt to look as much like the helmet as possible.”
Cimino’s design also incorporates the words “This is the Way” onto the band. “To include the quote was definitely a no brainer,” Cimino says. “However, the inspiration came from the character herself rather than the creed. The Armorer never removes her helmet. Her success is not influenced by beauty, but purely based on merit: her strength, leadership, and hard work.”
