At Alighieri, we believe in creating forever heirlooms. This talisman is carved by hand, then cast in bronze and plated in gold locally in the UK. 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. Every step of our process is driven by human beings and their stories, from Dante to Rosh to our A-team... to you.

A primal sun sits alongside a pink opal to set the skies on fire. The Heart of the Sun Opal Necklace is inspired by founder Rosh Mahtani’s early childhood in Africa, playing barefoot under the beating sun. The magic of the pastel hued skies, and the smell of the rain on the hot ground were some of her earliest memories. “After the rain falls…: is a collection of innocence, hope and freedom. The sun and the opal come together as an invitation to return to the pure creative freedom of childhood days.
