Abruzzese Cannatora type earrings in gold. Made by the goldsmith Luca Gualtieri of Sulmona promoted for sale by the Ferrari goldsmith of Guardiagrele.

Made by the goldsmith Luca Gualtieri of Sulmona promoted for sale by the Ferrari goldsmith of Guardiagrele, the "Cannatora", a choker necklace or earrings formed by a series of empty oval spheres worked in overhang.


The balls are obtained by striking an iron punch with a mold engraved in relief inside half cups in foil, so as to obtain a cantilevered relief. These cups are then welded together and decorated all around with gold spheres welded on top with the flame.


This processing with a granulated effect is called "prescine" which in dialect indicates a spiny fruit or berry (gooseberry). Initially the spheres were threaded through a silk ribbon which over time has been replaced by a gold chain.


There are several variations to the classic model. In some cases, a medallion always in filigree and of the same workmanship as the necklace, which often has a coral application in the center, is added to the barrel, at other times it is possible to find the presentosa in addition.


The spheres can be of different workmanship: embossed with the oval punch, "paternostre", "smooth vache" or "pumbijane", faceted, "senachele".


The cannatora was the typical gift for the wedding. It was the mother-in-law who put the necklace around her daughter-in-law's neck as a sign of welcome to the new family, but also as a symbol of continuity in the generation.
