The Fractured Poet Necklace —
In 1300, when Dante finds himself lost in the selva oscura he has been through many battles in his life. Exiled from Florence, his beloved homeland, alone; searching for the almost mythical being of Beatrice- the woman he imagines to be his salvation. Many of his friends have become enemies, those he thought he could trust fall by the wayside, and the political situation in Florence is bleak, with civil war raging. The Fractured Poet Necklace shows a formidable Dante, wearied from his battles, but strong nonetheless. It reminds us to take on the adventure, because a fractured poet is more interesting than one that is without any stories, or indeed any scars from battle.
The Fractured Poet Necklace is cast in bronze before being 24kt gold-plated. It hangs on a 45 cm gold-filled chain.
