Alice Cicolini’s fine jewellery is handmade by one of the last Jaipuri meenakari trained in the enamel traditions of Persia, which have been passed down through family generations over 200 years; their craftsmanship remains of the highest quality.
Inspired by the sacred architecture and patterns of the Silk Route, the pieces use rare enamels that are heirlooms in their own right.
