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.

This piece is 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.
