Two years ago, when the ‘366’ movie was in the making, Bela Padilla entrusted LVNA By Drake Dustin to be involved in creating something significant in the movie’s storyline. This was Bela’s debut as a director, making it more special for LVNA to be part of it. If you have already seen the movie, you will agree that one of the most symbolic props used here is the engagement ring that was left by Pao (the character portrayed by JC Santos) to June (the character portrayed by Bela Padilla). That engagement ring was the product of the creation of the LVNA brand specially made for the ‘366’ movie, not only that but also the heart-shaped necklace June wore in the film.

The whole creative process of these pieces of fine jewelry was a bit challenging for the brand since the time was very limited. It was in the middle of the pandemic when the whole cast and crew of the ‘366’ movie were about to fly to turkey to shoot this Netflix film, the LVNA brand has to double time thinking and deciding about the piece and design of an engagement ring that will symbolize and embody the character of Pao and the love he has for June. It is how the ring was made, to match the character of Pao and to symbolize and represent his love for June whom he was ready to spend the rest of his life in the movie, and this is how an engagement ring should be; meaningful and remarkable.
