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. For over fifty years Pietro Ferrini and Rodolfo Grotti have created unsurpassed artisan jewelry that combines age-old Etruscan metalsmithing techniques with innovative design. In the Nuova Bizantina Necklace they’ve updated bold Byzantine links with sleek cable links, alternating both high polished and textured finishes.
The result is stunning... classic with an edge. Italian made design 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 18K gold-finished sterling silver.
