Byzantine for the 21st century
The renown of Italy's jewelry, with its sensual beauty and extraordinary craftsmanship, is founded on the goldsmithing skills passed down through generations from the Medieval guilds that once guarded the secrets of the trade." --The New York Times
Authentic Byzantine jewelry was created during the Byzantine Empire, from the fourth century AD to approximately the mid-1400s. And, while the legendary beauty of Byzantine metalwork is undeniable, adding a few modern touches elevates it even more. To achieve this merger of past and present, we went to Italy’s epicenter of metalwork — Arezzo. There we sought out the best artisans to ever melt precious metals. What you see here is a striking blend of age-old Etruscan metalsmithing techniques with innovative design. In the Bizantina Moderno Collection, Byzantine links blend with sleek cable links, alternating both high polished and textured finishes. The result is stunning... classic with an edge.
Italian-made jewelry can be prohibitively expensive, but we are able to keep our costs low by forging valuable relationships with our artisans. You simply won’t find this caliber of handcrafted Italian jewelry for these prices anywhere else. In your choice of 14K gold or 14K gold over sterling silver.
