Bracelet meets cuff in this beautifully-handcrafted Italian piece. To create it, we went to Rigutino, a picturesque hamlet nestled in the rolling hills of the Val di Chiana near the beautiful town of Cortona, where “Under the Tuscan Sun” was filmed. There, we secured the talents of a group of artisans highly regarded for the impeccable handcrafted quality of their jewelry designs. For over three decades, Mario, along with his daughter Barbara and son Andrea, have upheld the classic traditions of Italian metalworking, while infusing cutting edge technology into their pieces.
Here, they’ve ingeniously blended the fluidity of a bracelet with the substance of a cuff. Each one is made carefully by hand, combining O-rings and elongated links to create a gorgeous weave resembling crochet. Incredibly comfortable and wearable, the Italian-Made Tessere Cufflet has all the hallmarks of a perfect piece of jewelry.
