Dave Ingrassia's Bio
Hi, I am David Ingrassia founder of Ingrassia & Sons. I would like to share some of our history with you. I joined the Navy in the early eighties and volunteered for submarine duty. I earned the right to wear my dolphins on the USS Daniel Boone SSBN (629). I also served aboard the Hyman Rickover SSN (709) where I am a plank owner. Currently I am a member of the U.S. Submarine Vets, V.F.W., and American Legion.
Shortly after the first Gulf War I was interested in buying military jewelry for myself to commemorate my submarine duty. I found the choice and quality of military jewelry to be very disappointing. All I came accross were cheaply made school ring designs. I started to do some research in jewelry design and manufacturing. The detail and quality I desired was only possible by computerized assisted design. What a difference from the ordinary template rings I was finding!
I finally had the ring I wanted. Soon others saw my ring and wanted one for themselves. By word of mouth Vets, Police, and Fireman, who recognized the quality and attention to detail, asked me to create fine jewelry for them from their personal badges, breast insignias and unit patches. Without hesitation I took on the challenge of making custom jewelry as a tribute to their personal achievements.
