Jonathan and Lauren Tesauro are the Millennial design twins who own and create for Brother Wolf Jewelry.
The tale of how Francis tamed a ferocious wolf that was terrorizing the people of an Italian town inspired the name of their six-year-old Brother Wolf line of religious-inspired jewelry.

The pair bought the firm in 2014 from a founder who wishes to remain anonymous, ready to sow their own jewelry seeds thanks to an industry education courtesy of their parents, owners of Chapel Hills Jewelry in Pittsburgh. Designers—including Lauren—bring home relics from afar, studying their history and relaying their meaning to Brother Wolf buyers, who purchase 14k gold or sterling silver replicas.
Each is assigned a specific virtue based on the history and origin of the original piece, and nearly everything is handmade in the U.S.

Brother Wolf Jewelry – Jonathan Tesauro of the Brother Wolf family gave some insight into the inner workings of the company. “We believe in fashion with meaning and that style is a virtue. Those are the two very important aspects to Brother Wolf.”
Brother Wolf takes a truly unique approach to jewelry design. Tesauro says, “Our designer travels the world and finds inspiration from different places. Relics found in remote shops far off the beaten path will inspire a design that will then be in the line.”
When asked about the process of making the pieces, he says, “Once we have a design, we do extensive research on the saint or mystic that we’re featuring. We want to know as much as possible so that we can write the story and share it with our customers. Each handmade piece comes with a card that explains the history and meaning.”
On the subject of the future of Brother Wolf, Tesauro says, “Right now, there isn’t a true leader in the high-end spiritual jewelry industry. We want to be that leader.”
Brother Wolf’s Sanctus Collection features beautiful and intricate images of saints and Western mystics cast in precious metals with hand finished 14 karat gold or sterling silver framing.
