Pietrasanta

Pirazzini Earrings

£60

A pair of three-bead drop earrings in sky blue - Made in Italy. 

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, who has been at the forefront of Italian history.

These earrings are named in honour of the Italian mezzo soprano Miriam Pirazzini. She was one of the most important Italian opera singers of the twentieth century. Beginning her career in 1944, she appeared in countless opera productions in major Italian theatres, including La Scala in Milan. The Venetian mezzo-soprano also starred opposite the renowned opera singer Maria Callas, most famously in 1948 as Amneris in Verdi’s Aïda. In 1962, at the height of her career she won a Grammy award for her recording of Suzuki in Puccini’s Madame Butterfly.

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.
