The Droplet of the Mountain is an ode to our founder’s childhood memories of growing up in Africa and playing with rough malachite stones. “I was mesmerised by the patterns and galaxies I would find in these stones as a child, and wanted to create a Modern Heirloom that brought me back to this childhood excitement of play.” - RM. In Dante’s “Divine Comedy”, it is forbidden to move up the mountain of Purgatory during the night hours. The Droplet of the Mountain is an invitation to take time for rest and play. Hand-cut in a bespoke Alighieri shape and set in our signature molten gold texture, it’s a tactile souvenir to hold close on your adventures.
