The Flame Of Desire Locket Necklace



The Flame of Desire Locket is handcrafted from 24kt gold plated bronze, in Hatton Garden, London. It is often thought that Dante Alighieri wrote the “Divine Comedy” as a love letter to Beatrice Portinari - a woman he longed to be with. The Flame of Desire Locket is our ode to Dante and Bea’s fraught love affair. The surreal heart shape amulet embodies the complexity of love and the ups and downs that it brings. The function of the locket has played an important role in many different cultures from the Egyptians to the Victorians - to hold a person close to your heart. The Alighieri locket is a modern take on this inherently personal heirloom. Hide a secret treasure within it or keep it open as a blank canvas for all of love’s possibilities.
