Story
Where is Home?

Home, perhaps, is not one place or country. Perhaps we find a feeling of home through the rituals we create for ourselves; a sentiment of being rooted or grounded. Alighieri’s SS20 collection highlights the way in which we build homes, relationships and family trees through jewellery, passing them to the people we love, carrying them daily as reminders of our past experiences and promises for future adventures.

“To posit the question, Where is home?, I travelled back to Zambia, the vivid backdrop of my childhood, to shoot the new collection. I wanted to place these images alongside portraits of my 62 year old mother, as a celebration of her roots, and to underline the beautiful way in which the Alighieri community is an anthology of human beings, of many ages and places. We are all collecting fragments from the places we’ve been, and trying to piece them together to create a sense of identity.” - Rosh Mahtani.

The Wishing Well Necklace evokes childhood memories of making a wish in a fountain, closing your eyes and hoping it comes true. The talismanic properties of jewellery conjure up a magical hope, that bring us back to this childlike state; wear the wishing well necklace as a vessel in which to carry your hopes around your neck.
