The Siena pendant is the first piece released from our inaugural house collection. Inspired by a commission for a stylish Italian woman who loves organic, sculptural jewellery, the remit was to produce a pendant which could be worn daily, and embraced modern simplicity. The result is a contemporary, solid 18ct yellow gold tear-shaped pendant. Its form is pure, sensual and beautifully balanced, and the pendant possesses a comforting weight.
The historic, romantic hilltop town of Siena nestles in the Tuscan countryside and is surrounded by landscapes of breathtaking beauty. It is famed for its medieval buildings and the distinctive central fan-shaped square, the Piazza del Campo. Viewed from above, the piazza is comprised of nine triangular segments, representing the local governing bodies, and these segments became the inspiration for the fluid element captured is the design of the pendant. The piazza has particular significance when it hosts the hotly contested annual “Palio” horse race. The piazza in on an incline leading to the Palazzo Pubblico, the principal civic building. This incline has been replicated in a subtle convex contour of the pendant, which discreetly curves from top to bottom when viewed in profile.
The dimensions of the pendant are considerable. It is a statement piece which needs no other embellishment, although if you love layering necklaces, layer away!
The pendant is sold complete with a 16″ (40cm) length 18ct gold curb chain, but can be purchased with an 18″ chain (45cm) by prior arrangement.
This range will be expanded to include different sizes, earrings and bracelets and is available in white, yellow and rose gold, and in platinum by arrangement.
If you love this free-flowing style with a splash of sparkle, then you’ll also love the Amori white gold and diamond earrings.
Other items featuring bold, architectural designs include the gold Serenata ring, the ultra chic gold stretchy bracelet (which layers seamlessly with other bracelets and bangles), and the Al Coro white moonstone ring.
