Story
Creative Director, Rosh Mahtani says, “I created the Leone Medallion as a reminder to myself, to be strong in moments of self-doubt. It was one of the first pieces I made in 2014. The textured medallion is inspired by the moment when Dante Alighieri finds himself in the selva oscura (dark wood) of the Inferno, confronted by a terrifying lion. His head held high, with a furious hunger, it seems as though the very air around him is trembling with fear. Dante crumbles and has an existential crisis when his mentor and friend, Virgil, suddenly appears to reassure him and give him confidence. It is a turning point, where fear turns to self-belief. Members of The Lion Club are joined together by their stories. The family includes Dina Asher-smith, Sandra Oh, Iris Law and Marcus Rashford.
Sustainability
At Alighieri, we believe in creating forever heirlooms. This talisman 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.
