Making jewels with minerals means giving life to something unique every time, the bright colors, the reflections of the crystals, everything takes on a particular charm, a unique suggestion that is given to us by the wonder of our planet. This pendant is made with a mineral called Vesuvian stone, contrary to what its name might suggest, in this case, it does not derive from the Campania region but rather from the Ligurian mountains. I wanted to leave all its beauty visible in that green that emerges from the rock , so I dedicated my work to the most hidden part, the back of the mineral. A Salamander in burnished silver with speckles in yellow gold and eyes in cognac diamonds clings to the mineral as if it wanted to protrude, the graceful amphibian as well as being the applied ornament acts as a structure itself that embeds the mineral, through its head it is possible insert a small yellow gold chain, which allows it to be worn. The result is a piece without equal; since the small animal has been modeled on the irregular shapes of the mineral, it is truly a one-of-a-kind jewel.

Inspired by Virginia Oldoini, Countess of Castiglione
A Woman of the Risorgimento, she was sent to France by her cousin Cavour with the intent of using her graces to seduce and convince the Emperor Napoleo III to side his troops with those of the Savoy house for the cause of Itaian indipendence.
The attempt succeeded and the two became lovers.
Napoleon III showered her with jewels incuding a necklace of 5 rounds of pearls which she often wore. The jewel represents two lovers, he embraces her and in between the two bodies a shape in silver brings to mind the shape of a unified Italy, reason for which the two met.
The man and the woman are also joined by a thread of pearls which remembers one of te most famous gifts the Emperor gave to the Countess.
