Details The Selva Oscura Necklace is handcrafted from 24ct gold plated bronze, in Hatton Garden, London. 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. When Dante enters the ‘selva oscura’, he is lost, physically and metaphorically. The word ‘oscura’, translating as both dark and confused, beautifully evokes the position he is in. The trees are weathered and the rocks are craggy. The Selva Oscura bracelet is a representation of this dark place; each link is hand-cast and woven together to create an armour, as you travel through your adventures.
