Story
The second Alighieri Man collection is an exploration of what it means to be a hero in the modern day world. “The Lost Day” highlights that heroism and adventure come in many different forms. The story shines a light on the many subsections of heroism: with it comes loss, pressure and darkness.

The collection is inspired by a myriad of heroes. From Dante, whose story is one of a man lost in a dark wood, to Sir Edmund Hilary and Sherpa Tenzing Norgay, the first men to summit Mount Everest in the 1950s. The perilous journeys force them to challenge the mountains of the mind.

After two years of lost days, this collection is an invitation to explore what it means to be a hero this summer. “The Lost Day” collection encompasses precious black rhodium plating for the first time and features a group of symbolic necklaces; an old dice, a mountain’s crevice, a cross-like medieval sword, and a Roman key which is an invitation to unlock your own narrative.

When researching the climb of Sir Edmund Hilary and Tenzing Norgay, I came across the phrase - Everest is a 'mountain of the mind'. Its treacherous crevasses and volatile conditions are an obsession for so many. In our modern world, there are so many mental crevasses to navigate. As a woman, I have always felt very lucky in my freedom to explore these emotional challenges with my friends. It's always struck me that men do not necessarily have the same support network. The Mountains of the Mind necklace, with its rocky crevasses represents these silent emotional challenges. Wear it as a reminder that you are not going through them alone.
