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 Teresa Sarti Strada, the co-founder and first president of the Italian charity Emergency, which provides free medical treatment to the victims of war, poverty and landmines.

Teresa Sarti was a proactive supporter of peace and human rights, and starting out as a high school teacher, she went on to set up the charity in 1994 together with her husband. Their NGO now operates on the basis that access to free healthcare is a fundamental human right, which it aims to fulfil through the construction, support and operation of hospitals in predominantly war-stricken countries.
