Details The Olive Earrings are handcrafted from 24ct gold plated bronze and freshwater baroque pearls, in Hatton Garden, London. Earring Posts: Gold plated sterling silver posts. Please note, each pearl is completely unique and tells their own story, so they may vary in shape and size. For reasons of hygiene, earrings are non-refundable and cannot be exchanged. Story Where is Home? Home, perhaps, is not one place or country. Perhaps we find a feeling of home through the rituals we create for ourselves; a sentiment of being rooted or grounded. Alighieri’s SS20 collection highlights the way in which we build homes, relationships and family trees through jewellery, passing them to the people we love, carrying them daily as reminders of our past experiences and promises for future adventures. “To posit the question, Where is home?, I travelled back to Zambia, the vivid backdrop of my childhood, to shoot the new collection. I wanted to place these images alongside portraits of my 62 year old mother, as a celebration of her roots, and to underline the beautiful way in which the Alighieri community is an anthology of human beings, of many ages and places. We are all collecting fragments from the places we’ve been, and trying to piece them together to create a sense of identity.” - Rosh Mahtani. The Olive Earrings are inspired by the second canto of Purgatorio, in which Dante references an olive-branch as a mark of friendship. The combination of the branch-like texture, and the round baroque pearl symbolise the importance of forging relationships and building a tree of friends to guide you through the world.
