In times like these, beautiful objects can be a wonderful form of distraction. From a particularly ornate necklace to an intricately detailed ring, jewellery is one of the things we are still putting on every day in order to maintain some normality and make ourselves feel slightly more polished while sitting at home in our casualwear.
Thankfully, Alighieri has been specialising in creating beautiful distractions for quite some time, as the jewellery label was founded in 2014 and has become a favourite amongst the fashion set in the years since.
The London-based brand was created by Rosh Mahtani and draws inspiration from poet Dante Alighieri's Divine Comedy. As stated on the brand's website, each piece of jewellery is "battered, imperfect, and a little bit melancholy," which ironically, feels more poignant than ever right now. Handcrafted and 24ct gold-plated, Alighieri's pieces are the kind of items that are destined to become future family heirlooms. From pearl-embellished earrings to medallion necklaces, each piece feels unique and creates the perfect outfit pick-me-up.
