His work is famous. But he was infamous. Benvenuto Cellini was one of Italy's most celebrated goldsmiths. During the Golden Era of the Old Masters, he competed with the likes of Michelangelo, Titian and Donatello for greatness. But he was the “golden boy.” He was also a Renaissance bad boy. If you want to look into the details of his life, we recommend you read his autobiography, a sprawling confessional account of romance and skullduggery that puts any modern tell-all to shame.
Like the Renaissance renegade himself, the Torcere (Italian for “twist”) Collection is both classic and unconventional. A shining example of the metalsmith's craft, the necklace and bracelet feature an intricate woven pattern finished in lustrous gold. The perfect way to capture the classic elegance of the Italian Renaissance with a unique, artistic flair that would make Cellini proud. And maybe just a little jealous.
