A story told by jewellery, a bold and courageous spirit encapsulated in each and every element – it’s the story of the Alighieri jewellery brand from London. Every piece of jewellery produced is set to inspire fearlessness on our life adventures, to feel confident and capable.

Alighieri was founded in 2014 by Rosh Mahtani, a London-based designer growing up in Zambia, Africa. The name Alighieri came from Dante Alighieri’s “Divine Comedy” – the story of a poet lost in the woods and was confronted to bring out their courage. With a deep love for the courage she found in literature and the appreciation of her family heirloom as jewellery, Rosh Mahtani moulded the brand Alighieri.

All Alighieri’s pieces are carefully handcrafted bringing out the most genuine and free-spirited details. It is truly magical how every feature bonded splendidly. If you are into the intricacy, the elegance and the wildness, Alighieri is the one for you.

Alighieri takes responsibility as a contributor to the sustainability movement by using recycled materials. The pieces are processed in an ancient technique of wax casting.

Laura Lombardi

Laura Lombardi is one of the jewellery brands introducing a staple kind of design for every day and every occasion. They are minimalist and classic, but undoubtedly not bored to the eyes. Laura Lombardi’s jewellery style revolves around gold chains, how each simple chain can be crafted and cling beautifully to the other to create all the gorgeous pieces we see in their collections today.

The gold chains’ inspiration for the brand date back to the 1980s when designer Laura Lombardi’s father brought a sample of Italian gold chains to their sales office. Her admiration for chains grew as she grew, assembling lockets and lariats. In 2010, the New York-based brand was born out of her personal deep connection and enjoyment for jewellery.

Laura Lombardi’s design is the manifestation of both industrial sensation and chic feels. They counteract yet do not cancel out each other, instead, Laura knows how to bring the best out of two elements to harmonize. With the knowledge of sculpture, she experimented with different proportions and scales of chains, giving us the alluring effect of chains and curvation.
