To remember and honour the identities of the women that inspire us and whose stories we wish to celebrate, we have named each piece of jewellery after a female pioneer at the forefront of Italian history.
Our Accardi line is named in honour of the great Carla Accardi, a Sicilian painter, feminist activist, and key figure in Italy’s avant-garde movement.
Celebrated as a leading artist in the field of abstract art, she was also a central figure in the struggle for gender equality in post-war Italy. In 1970, she co-founded the 'Rivolta Femminile'(the Female Revolt) group together with fellow activists Carla Lonzi and Elvira Banotti. 'Rivolta Femminile' was one of Italy’s first feminist groups with its own publishing house, that printed and disseminated contemporary feminist literature.
Each Pietrasanta piece is lovingly hand-made in Milan, and crafted using the highest quality materials sourced from Italy. Each item comes in a soft white velvet pouch, and a branded presentation box so that you can safely store your new jewellery.
All Pietrasanta jewellery is completely hypoallergenic – it’s free from lead, copper and nickel, so that you can wear it all day long without any issues.
The jewellery may be: plated in gold; silver 925, galvanized gold or galvanized silver – we would recommend the following steps to ensure your items are not damaged and stay clean. The wiring, clasps and studs may tarnish naturally over time. Tarnishing occurs naturally and to avoid this you may use a lint-free cloth to clean the metals parts of your jewellery. Similarly, as certain parts may bend under pressure, we suggest that the items be stored and transported in rigid boxes to avoid any external pressure compromising the item. If the jewellery does not ‘fall’ as expected, remember not to press down on the item, but try to gently align the pieces to their intended state.
