In all the time we have known Maria Vittoria Albani not once have we not been captivated by her creativity, and gracious demeanour.
Often informed by the wonders of Nature our veteran artisan-maker who hails from Milan gives space to the natural order of things. A butterfly nestled on a flower, a honey bee looking for nectar, a falling star in the midnight sky; all wondrous events that capture the imagination and nurture her heart.
The journey from an inactive chrysalis to a colourful gracious butterfly is a narrative worth telling, and what better way than to recreate her in a ring that conveys the essence of her being.
Simple, elegant, and bewitching Maria Vittoria Albani’s handmade butterfly motif ring is a keeper!
About the Designer
In the heart of Milan there is a historical workshop. Founded in 1944, this small nook houses our own Maria Vittoria Albani; an eclectic designer of splendidly unusual costume jewellery.
Petite, elegant, and immensely talented, Maria makes art that speaks to natural beauty and is expressed through impeccable craftsmanship. Each piece is made by the nimble hands of artisans.
Maria’s career spans decades, and in recognition of her contribution to this art form Swarovski commissioned her pieces to be showcased in the crystal maker’s touring exhibition of “Teatro alla Scala”. Maria’s pieces also appeared in the Victoria & Albert Museum in London.
