After studying Italian and French literature at the University of Oxford, Rosh Mahtani became immersed in Florentine poet, Dante Alighieri’s book of poems entitled The Divine Comedy. She dreamt of creating her own world, inspired by these mythical landscapes and stories of vulnerability of which she read. Rosh founded Alighieri in 2014.
Jewellery has been a universal vehicle of connection for centuries; Rosh created Alighieri to bring people of all cultures and ages together, creating communities through these tales of vulnerability. Human relationships are embedded in every part of the brand, and are embodied in her commitment to local craftsmanship and sustainable practice. The organic and inclusive nature of Alighieri is an invitation for our our customers to write their own poetry.
Each piece starts with Rosh, a candle and some wax, as she hand creates the Alighieri signature molten textures, scraggy lines and bulbous surfaces, each symbolising an emotion or a feeling personal to her, before they are cast by a family run business just two streets away from our studio using recycled metals.
Alighieri is a mythical and kind universe, somewhere to inspire escapism and travel, but also a place that appreciates realism and the difficulties that can face us at any point.
