Founded in 2014, Aligheri is a luxury jewellery brand inspired by Dante Alighieri’s ‘Divine Comedy’. The founder, Rosh Mahtani designs her collections around this classic piece of literature, so each piece corresponds to one of Dante Alighieri’s poems. Mahtani wanted to create ‘modern heirlooms’ in her jewellery, which would follow the wearer throughout their life and become part of their own story. The London-based brand is inspired by travel and literature, which certainly translates to the stunning jewellery we see throughout Alighieri collections. All pieces are crafted sustainably, and the brand offers both gold and silver styles.
Inspiration from Dante Alighieri culminates in the jewellery’s perfect imperfections. With collections for both men and women, the distinctive Alighieri approach is consistent throughout. The signature battered style of jewellery represents Dante’s troubled subjects. The rich gold used throughout, as well as the use of pearls, sapphires and shell inspired designs creates the feeling of far-flung adventure, exactly what Mahtani wished to achieve. The mismatched earrings, chunky hair pins and medallion necklaces appear as treasures stumbled upon whilst travelling. Alighieri’s irregular shaped pieces are the ultimate accessory for effortless luxury and glamour. Simple, hammered-style rings and delicate earrings provide the perfect daily pieces to any collection, while more statement jewellery is available in bold signet rings and chunky necklaces. Unique and striking, Alighieri designs are an escape to sunsets and deep-rooted memories.
Alighieri designs can be found online through various retailers including the brand’s own site. Matches Fashion, Liberty, Net-a-Porter and Selfridges are among a wide range of stockists worldwide.
