The Heart of the Leone re-visits our iconic Leone Medallion, designed to bring you strength and courage on your adventures. 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. The precious black rhodium plating evokes the dark wood and is a poignant representation of the fact that no adventure or journey is without its difficult or lost moments. Members of The Lion Club are joined together by their stories. The family includes Dina Asher-smith, Sandra Oh, Iris Law and Marcus Rashford.
At Alighieri, we believe in creating forever heirlooms. This piece is carved by hand, then cast in 100% recycled ecosilver a stone's throw from our studio in Hatton Garden. We source our recycled ecosilver from Cooksongold, our supplier of precious metals who are certified by the Responsible Jewellery Council. Each piece is then plated and 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.
