High on a hill southeast of Florence lies the city of Arezzo in the Tuscany region of Italy. Amidst medieval architecture the UnoAerre jewelers produce their superlative golden chain collection, 1AR. Steeped in the tradition of Italian craftsmanship with the modern jewelry collector in mind; they have reproduced these bold designs from their archives- designs that would be unaffordable in 18 karat gold today. By using a base of brass and then electroplating with 18 karat gold and adding a scratch resistant finish, 1AR chains by UnoAerre retain their beauty. It gives you the opportunity to hold a piece of expertly crafted Italian elegance in your hand. And while the price certainly belies the appearance, you can experience affordable luxury.
I love the bold style and smooth textures of the 1AR interlocking circle link necklace:
This oval link bracelet is highly polished and makes a powerful statement:
Hammered links impart an exciting texture:
If you have the chance to visit Arezzo, go without hesitation! Gazing over the Piazza Grande will give you a sense of connection to the beauty and history that this collection embodies. And if a trip to Italy is not in your immediate future, shop our 1AR collection. That way, when an admiring friend compliments your jewelry and asks where you got it, you can honestly say, “From Italy!”
