Alighieri

London-based, Rosh Mahtani studied French and Italian at Oxford University. Upon graduating in 2012, she was inspired to create modern heirlooms, born from the literature she had studied: Dante Alighieri’s “Divine Comedy,” in particular.

She spent two years working with stylists and in e-commerce, all the while, dreaming of her collection, and creating it by night. With no formal training, and a vehement obsession with the idea of melancholy and imperfection, Alighieri was officially launched in 2014. Just like Dante’s subjects, each piece of jewellery is battered, imperfect, and a little bit melancholy. Every piece tells a story, embodying a modern heirloom, that will travel with you on your own adventures. Rosh wanted to create a brand that is firmly rooted in literature and travel – that tells a story of whirlwind adventures, battered creatures, scraggy landscapes and passionate mistakes. She is always interested in collaborating with other writers, designers and artists.
