In the fifth canto of Purgatorio Dante encounters the sinner, Buonconte da Montefeltro. Buonconte led the Ghibelline army (Dante’s rival faction), and died in the Battle of Campaldino, 1289. Upon his death, the devil promptly appeared, ready and eager to take his soul into the infernal abyss. However, he is turned away by an angel. Somehow, the Ghibelline leader is saved from Inferno, at the final moment of his life, because he sheds just one little teardrop - una lacrimetta.

The Baby Spellbinding Amphora is a talisman to carry on your adventures, as a reminder of the beauty of the teardrop, and all its cathartic powers. The shape resembles an antique Roman vase, the fluid drip of a teardrop, and an anatomical heart, exemplifying the ways in which our mind and body are interconnected.

One of our earliest amulets, the Spellbinding Amphora is a vessel of creativity. On the mountain of Purgatory Dante encounters a soul who is saved from the depths of hell by shedding a single teardrop. Through his own poetry, Dante saves himself from despair of the Inferno. This fragmented teardrop amphora is an ode to the beauty of creativity and all its cathartic powers.
At Alighieri, we believe in creating forever heirlooms. The pendant for this piece is carved by hand, then cast in bronze and plated in gold a stone's throw from our studio in Hatton Garden. The bronze used in this manufacturing process is fully recycled, with all excess metal going back into the cycle of creating tomorrow's forever piece. Each one is then hand-finished with care and love. 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.

Your Alighieri order will be packed by hand, with love, and dispatched within 1-2 working days.
