This cuff is made from a mold that dates back to the Renaissance. Paola has graciously agreed to partner with us on jewelry made from these molds and will be using these molds to make jewelry only for us, therefore, only for you.
I fell in love with this cuff because it is not only a beautiful piece of handmade jewelry, but a piece of history as well. Paola, one of our favorite manufacturers, found these beautiful jewelry molds in the basement of an old jewelry shop near the Ponte Vecchio in Florence. These jewelry molds were created during the Renaissance (yes, THAT Renaissance), when the wealthy of Florence would commission unique cuffs of gold to be made for them to show their interests. These cuffs were a one of a kind signature for the wearer only and were worn by men and women. After creating stunning works of art in gold, these molds have been waiting there for you, buried in a basement, for hundreds of years until Paola found them and realized what they were. A piece of history, the shadows and voices of centuries past. These molds were the mark of the successful citizens in their day. The scene on this mold depicts a celebration of the boats that were conserved in the Fiumicino Museum in Rome. They were shown to admire the construction system created by the government branch that managed the ships. This is a rare find and Paola bought all the molds she found. She has not done them for anyone else. She will make yours for you first.
A beautiful cuff made from a mold that was created centuries ago to be made of gold during the Renaissance. This cuff depicted the celebration of the battleships and cargo ships. This cuff is literally a piece of history,
