Italian nobility meets legendary Italian gold design in the Barberini Earrings.
Walk around Rome and you’ll discover the Barberini bee virtually everywhere– carved into marble and wood, woven into curtains and ingrained in the architecture of every square in Rome.
The bee, a symbol of hard work, dedication, and eloquence, comprises the crest of the powerful Barberini’s– a family of Italian nobility that rose to prominence in 17th century Rome. The Barberini are to Rome what the Medici family are to Florence.
In the Barberini Earrings, bees emerge in sculpted relief from gold-finished sterling silver “coins” with “bezels” that sparkle with white rounds for a charming tribute to the art of Rome.
