This collection is a treasure trove of armour: little emblems of protection, in the form of sculptural hands and Sicilian bleeding hearts, along with gilded chain vests, belts with small tools clipped on, and of course, glass vessels, to fill with adventures to come.” - Rosh Mahtani

O buono Appollo, a l’ultimo lavoro
fammi del tuo valor si fatto vaso,
come dimandi a dar l’amato alloro

O good Apollo, for his last labour
make me a vessel worthy
of the gift of your beloved laurel.

Paradiso, canto i

For Dante, poetry was his armour and solace. He calls to Apollo, the God of all things creative, asking him to make him worthy of the journey, as he enters the first circle of Paradiso. The baroque pearls of Apollo’s Story Earrings hark back to Bernini’s marble sculpture of Apollo and Daphne; representing the strength to be found in poetry and stories, in warding away tears.
