You walk the streets of Arezzo and you can feel the history under your feet. The weathered stones, bronze sculptures and grand architectural feats of this Tuscany hillside town hold a million stories, a million secrets, and the inspiration for countless artistic masterpieces. But as impressive as it is to gaze upon the sunset behind the medieval palaces and church towers, some of the city's best work is being done on a much smaller scale.
Tucked in the narrow alleyways and along the ancient main roads, skilled artisans are working day and night to maintain the time-honored traditions of Renaissance craftsmanship. Arezzo is one of the most important jewelry centers in Italy and that's where we found this diverse collection of handcrafted treasures. Each displays the perfect collaboration of Old World technique and modern-day creativity. And because each is expertly finished in genuine gold, you get to enjoy the luxury and luster of 14-karat color without spending a fortune!
Our Castel Earrings are gorgeous knots of polished, gold-finished perfection. Italy is the home of history's greatest artistic masters. But there are plenty of living artists at work who deserve our admiration. And if you take a moment to stray from the path of tourist-packed museums and aging monuments you can discover a world of skilled craftspeople hard at work making masterpieces in precious metal.
We've collected some remarkable examples of the luxury metalsmithing that is coming out of modern Italy. Each piece carries the hallmarks of Italian artisan traditions and each is finished in lustrous, genuine yellow gold. Castel Earrings offer beautiful proof that the Italian Renaissance is still going on!
