I always enjoy knowing about the inspiration for a piece of jewelry, and here is the back story on this lovely choker by Sara Shala.
“I’m an avid traveller, but only few places are especially dear to my heart, Rome certainly being at the top of the list. The eternal city and its rich history along with vibrant eclectic architecture has been captivating dreamers from all over the world for a long time. Thought the centuries, contemporary civilization looked back to Rome for cultural guidance. With Via Baccina, the historical goldsmiths street of Rome, located a few hundred meters away from Colosseum, I could easily envision this collection coming to live. Inspired by the famous ancient amphitheater, Colosseo Collection is meant to be worn with confidence of a true warrior.
Much like Rome centuries ago, New York is considered the capital of the world. Which is why Colosseo Collection is especially loved by my fellow New Yorkers.”
This piece is made with gold plated sterling silver, and is priced at USD$550.
