This little silver key is a symbol of new beginnings. When Dante enters the Inferno he says, “I am not St Paul, I am not Aeneas.” Feeling inadequate for the journey, his guide appears and inspires him to unlock his heroic courage. The word “aperture” derives from the Latin aperire - to open. Carry this talisman with you to bring you clarity on your everyday adventures.
At Alighieri, we believe in creating forever heirlooms. This piece is carved by hand, then cast in 100% recycled ecosilver a stone's throw from our studio in Hatton Garden. We source our recycled ecosilver from Cooksongold, our supplier of precious metals who are certified by the Responsible Jewellery Council. Our small, family-run caster has been our partner since the very inception of the brand - every step of our process is driven by human beings and their stories, from Dante to Rosh to our A-team... to you.
