Pietrasanta

Pirazzini Earrings

£60

A pair of three-bead drop earrings in sky blue - 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, who has been at the forefront of Italian history.

This necklace 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.

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.
