Alighieri is a collection of jewellery inspired by Dante Alighieri’s ‘Divine Comedy’; each piece corresponds to one of the poet’s 100 poems. As the pilgrim journeys through the realms of Hell, Purgatory, and Paradise, he encounters mythical creatures, scraggy landscapes, and terrifying demons.


Inspired by his odyssey, I imagined these characters in gold, wrapped around my neck, and weaving their way through my fingers, as I read.

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 in e-commerce and interning for stylists and designers, 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.

Alighieri is currently stocked at Joseph, The Store x Soho House, Shop at Bluebird, Farfetch.com, and BJORK Florence.
