Pietrasanta

Mosca Necklace

£190

A bold double-stringed necklace with round and rectangular variations of navy, cobalt, and light blue beads - 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 at the forefront of Italian history.

The name of this particular necklace is inspired by Bianca Mosca, a London-based fashion designer of Italian descent. After the second World War, Mosca rose to prominence as one of the most important fashion designers in England. Following her employment as head designer at several leading British fashion houses, she founded her own couture label in 1946 which promoted the use of British fabrics in dressmaking. In 1939 she became the only female founding member of the Society of London Fashion Designers, which represented the interests of the British couture industry. Upon her death, she was celebrated as a true innovator in the early years of the British fashion industry.

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.
