Fontana Earrings - Hoop
An elegant pair of drop earrings made up of a red-swirl bead and navy-blue hoop - 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.
These earrings pay homage to the famous Fontana sisters: Zoe, Micol and Giovanna. In 1943, these three sisters founded their own high fashion atelier in Rome - in the midst of World War II. Notwithstanding the turbulent and unstable times, the fashion house 'Sorelle Fontana' flourished and the three sisters went on to dress the most iconic women of their time, such as Ava Gardner, Liz Taylor, Audrey Hepburn and Grace di Monaco. Pioneers in their field, their name became synonymous with Italian high fashion worldwide.

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.
