Alighieri 24K Gold-plated Shield of Poetry earrings
Import Duties Included
These 24K gold-plated Alighieri Shield of Poetry earrings feature butterfly backs and a circular molten structure. They sit like cuffs on the ear lobe, as a tribute to the idea of poetry as a shield during difficult times. When Dante was writing the Divina Commedia in the 1300s he was in a dark place, in exile, surrounded by political turmoil. It could be said that he turned to poetry as a means of catharsis. You have also been known to pen a few phrases, after all, you live by your own poetic license.
