CARING FOR YOUR HEIRLOOMS_

Alighieri’s Modern Heirlooms are designed to last a lifetime. These talismans are created to protect you on your adventures. Learn more about how to care for them, and preserve their power.

The L’Aura Choker and Lia Earrings

GOLD PLATED AND STERLING SILVER_

  • To keep your 24 carat gold-plated or sterling silver heirlooms as shiny as possible, we advise you to avoid contact with water, perfumes, lotions or cosmetics.
  • Swimming, showering or exercise is not recommended, as it will tarnish the metals over time.

    (All our talismans are available in solid gold, if you never want to take them off, come rain or shine.)
  • When your talisman is not on your person, store it in a cool, dry place, preferably its box to preserve its strength, as it preserves yours.
  • Wipe your jewellery clean with soft cloth before putting it away, to rest.

Don’t forget, if you do happen to take your heirlooms on an unexpected adventure, and they need any sort of restoration, we offer a lifelong complimentary service. Simply contact clients@alighieri.co.uk, for advice and assistance.

SOLID GOLD_

  • Solid 9 carat gold is the best option for Modern Heirlooms you want to wear at all times.
  • To preserve the lustre of your gold talismans, store them in a cool dry place, preferably its box to preserve its strength, as it preserves yours.
  • Whilst we can shower and sleep with your solid gold pieces, we recommend keeping them away from any harsh cleaning products or perfumes.

FRESHWATER PEARLS_

The Infernal Storm Earrings, Olive Earrings and Nocturnal Alchemy Bracelet

  • Pearls are natural materials and can be fragile, handle them with care and love. When carrying them on your travels, protect them in a box or pouch.
  • To clean your pearls, apply a small amount of washing up liquid to a cloth, and wipe them clean with a damp sponge. Do not allow the gold-plated or sterling silver castings come into contact with soap or water.
  • We are always happy to restore your pearls in our studio, upon request.

DIAMONDS AND GEMSTONES_

  • All our natural diamonds and precious gemstones are sourced with great care. To prevent any damage, we recommend avoiding perfumes and cosmetics, or any household chemicals.
  • Clean your gemstones with a clean, soft, damp cloth when needed.

BLACK RHODIUM PLATED_

  • To keep your black rhodium plated heirlooms as shiny as possible, we advise you to avoid contact with water, perfumes, lotions or cosmetics.
  • Swimming, showering or exercise is not recommended, as it will tarnish the metals over time.
  • When your talisman is not on your person, store it in a cool, dry place, preferably its box to preserve its strength, as it preserves yours.
  • Wipe your jewellery clean with soft cloth before putting it away, to rest.
  • Due to the nature of black rhodium plating, over time, the colour may change with wear from dark black to lighter oil tones.
The original collection of talismans is designed to bring you strength and courage on your adventures.

It all began when Rosh found Dante Alighieri lost in the Inferno, confronted by a lion... The lion was so terrifying that even the air around him was “trembling with fear”.

The lion forces him to summon strength and has become Rosh's everyday symbol of courage.
