It’s hard to believe the stories told about (and by) the famous Italian goldsmiths of the Middle Ages. The dramatic rivalries and excesses of artists like Cellini and Bandinelli make even the most outrageous reality shows seem tame by comparison. But behind all of that petty jealousy and cutthroat competition was a tradition of excellence and craft that continues today.
Centuries after the Renaissance, Italians are still regarded as the most gifted goldsmiths in the world. They have ways of transforming the precious yellow metal into works of rare beauty that seem like magic. And they’re always coming up with impressive new tricks. Our Liberta Necklace is lightweight work of Italian-crafted ingenuity that features interlocking, smooth and textured links. The necklace gives the appearance of much heavier pieces, without the bulky feel. True luxury that feels "lighter than air!"
