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.

All of our jewellery is created by sourcing the highest quality Italian-made beads, and carefully hand-made in Milan. We want the best for you so please see the steps below to best take care of your Pietrasanta jewellery.
The wiring, clasps and studs may tarnish naturally over time - cleaning your jewellery with a lint-free cloth & storing it in a dark spot can avoid this. Avoid contact with perfumes, sprays, cosmetics, creams, humidity and extreme temperatures, as it might damage the resin and metal parts. When travelling with your jewellery, it's a good idea to store it in a rigid box to avoid external pressures from damaging your statement pieces. All of our jewellery comes with a branded pouch and presentation box to help you take the best care of your jewellery.
