Jewel of the Rosoni d'Italia collection, inspired by Italian Cathedrals. Made all in 925 silver (and colored glazes for the enamelled versions).
This is the rose window of the church of Sant'Agostino in Amatrice (central Italy), which was destroyed due to the earthquake of 24/08/2016.
The jewel is in 925 silver, handmade in a limited edition and numbered to 1,000 copies, and was created in collaboration with the patronage of the Municipality of Amatrice.
For each purchase € 50.00 will be donated to the Municipality of Amatrice for reconstruction. The jewel will be accompanied by black string with closing hook, warranty certificate, numbering and receipt of payment made to the Municipality of Amatrice.
The Church of Sant'Agostino is located at the northeastern end of the city, near a gate of the fourteenth-century wall, Porta Carbonara. It has a horizontal crowning façade with a rich modern rose window (dating back to the mid-30s of the twentieth century) and a beautiful late Gothic portal (1428), richly carved. Remarkable were the statues of the Archangel Gabriel and the Virgin Annunciated, and the images of friars forming the unique ornamental motif of one of the frames of the lunette, no longer visible today because they were stolen by unknown persons.
The interior, entirely rebuilt in the eighteenth century and now restored, is of little interest; there are, however, two frescoes representing the Annunciation (1491) and the Madonna enthroned with Child and Angels (1492), of a painter from the circle of Vittore Crivelli and Pietro Alamanno, called the "Master of the Madonna della Misericordia".
Rosoni d'Italia guarantees that this jewel is handmade of silver (925/1000) and is produced entirely in Italy. In addition, everything related to the packaging, advertising and exhibition material of Rosoni d'Italia jewels is rigorously made in Italy at local artisan workshops.
Every jewel comes with a certificate of guarantee certifying the type of metal (18 Kt gold or 925 silver) with the historical description of the rose window in both Italian and English. All jewels are complete with case and shopper.
