A sleek necklace featuring a modern composition of black, white and red plaques - lovingly hand-made in Italy.
Available in two sizes: a longer 'opera' length necklace, and a slightly shorter 'matinee' length one.
Our necklace is named after the great Tina Anselmi, Italy's first female minister.
Born in 1927, she became a member of the Italian resistance during the Second World War. In 1595, she joined the Italian Christian Democratic party and became the party’s first female deputy leader, fighting for gender equality and proposing equal opportunity laws to the Italian parliament. She made history in 1976, when she was appointed Minister of Health. She later broke new ground again, when she became the first woman to lead a public inquiry in Italy, forming the head of a commission to expose a corrupt far-right political network. Today, she is best known for becoming a pioneer for gender parity and her significant role in making free healthcare accessible throughout Italy.

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.
