At Alighieri, we believe in creating forever heirlooms. 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 (unless it is personalised or made to order).

We offer free shipping and returns to our clients based in the UK.

We are pleased to cover all taxes and duties on orders going to the EU and the United States. Regrettably, we are unable to cover taxes and duties for orders outside of these regions, and these will be your responsibility to pay.

It is often thought that Dante Alighieri wrote the “Divine Comedy” as a love letter to Beatrice Portinari - a woman he longed to be with.

The Flame of Desire Locket is our ode to Dante and Bea’s fraught love affair.

The surreal heart shape amulet embodies the complexity of love and the ups and downs that it brings. The function of the locket has played an important role in many different cultures from the Egyptians to the Victorians - to hold a person close to your heart.

The Alighieri locket is a modern take on this inherently personal heirloom. Hide a secret treasure within it or keep it open as a blank canvas for all of love’s possibilities.
