Momentary Defeat Necklace — Regular price £210.00

The Warrior Collection ||
When Dante first enters the dark wood, he is lost, without hope and ready to turn back,

I lost hope of the ascent.
Like one who rejoices in his victories,
and when the time comes that makes him the loser,
has all his thoughts turned to sadness and lamentation.

The Momentary Defeat Necklace marks this moment; Dante's hope is at an all-time low. He has been thrown a lion, a leopard, and a she-wolf. For a moment, under such brutal circumstances, he admits defeat. It takes a few more moments before he stands up, to fight again.

The Momentary Defeat Necklace is cast in 24kt gold-plated bronze, and hangs on a 60 cm gold-filled chain.

All our pieces are made to order and crafted in our London studios, through the process of lost wax casting. Please allow 14-21 days for Alighieri to create your unique modern heirloom.
