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 necklace is named after the prolific sixteenth-century composer Francesca Caccini.
Considered a prodigy at the Italian Renaissance courts as a female singer, multi-instrumentalist, poet and composer, she penned what is today thought of as the oldest opera ever to have been written and staged by a woman. Her seminal work ‘La Liberazione di Ruggiero’ (1625) was commissioned by her patron Archduchess Maria Magdalena of Austria, earning her great esteem from her contemporaries and making her the highest paid musician at the Florentine court in the 1620s. Her musical talents made her a Medici court favourite, earning her the nickname ‘La Cecchina’.
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.
