Matanai Jewelry aims to celebrate parenthood by creating personalized jewelry made using your loved ones’ own handprints, footprints & fingerprints. Every piece is hand-crafted out of 14k gold or sterling silver in our studio in New York. Our jewelry is a great gift for parents or grandparents to celebrate a child.
Matanai was founded in 2016 in New York City by Anna Denisova. Anna got her first experience in the world of high-end jewelry when working at Damiani, a legendary Italian luxury jewelry house. Her early designs were inspired by the gold- and silversmiths of Northern Thailand and Bali, and she later attended the Studio Jewelers school in New York City to hone her skills.
“Our daughter’s birth inspired me to come up with a cool and original wedding anniversary gift for my husband — a set of gold cufflinks with our little Vivian’s hand and foot prints. Needless to say, my husband absolutely loved the links (and to this day doesn’t miss a chance to sport them), and the idea took on a life of its own as so many of our friends and family started asking for similar charms and jewelry with their little ones’ prints. It turned out that taking prints is quick, easy and safe, and so the Matanai Baby&Me collection was born.“
