Made in Italy in the 21st century, circa 2010s, this articulated bracelet is a little punk rock and Haute Couture. Some of the most robust designs effortlessly mix edgy with luxe, street with high fashion. Looks from Alexander McQueen, Virgil Abloh, and even Karl Lagerfeld spring to mind. Pyramid studs were used in the armor of the Middle Ages, but they are as punk rock a detail as they come. This Diamond "LOVE" Bracelet features an articulated row of 11 pyramid studs crafted in luxurious 18K white gold, alternating between plain metal and diamond encrusted. Of the 11 studs, 5 are set with pavé diamonds on all four planes. A rectangular plaque that spells out LOVE in raised white gold solid caps is likewise embellished with pavé diamonds for 200 diamonds weighing an estimated 6.00 carats. The total weight is a significant 62.77 grams.

The 8-inch bracelet is chock-full of interesting details. The simple push clasp at one end is dotted with mil-graining, a technique popular in the late 19th and early 20th centuries, where small metal grains were used to complement the gemstones and extend the sparkle. The other end of the clasp is much more elaborate, introducing a new motif—a round medallion with a Greco-Roman look and more milgrain around the borders. The medallion reveals a bas-relief pair of masks oriented back-to-back, which is not the usual configuration for the Greek masks representing Tragedy and Comedy. An inscription in Italian on the back of the medallion, "Giano re dei passage e decli inizi," clarifies the meaning. It translates to Janus King of Passages and Beginnings. In ancient Roman religion and myth, the Two-Faced Janus is the god of beginnings, transitions, and endings. He is often depicted as having two faces, one looking to the future and one to the past.

Janus was proudly venerated as a uniquely Roman god rather than one adopted from the Greek pantheon. He was famously associated with the transition between peace and war and known as the doorkeeper of the heavens. January is named after Janus, which changes the meaning of the 11 pyramid studs leading to the LOVE plaque. The 11 studs arguably represent the other months of the year, with the medallion of Janus on the closure representing January. When a piece of jewelry can lead us through history and reveal symbolism as rich as this, it is indeed a compelling piece of jewelry.

Measures approx. 8" in length. Approx. 200 diamonds weighing an estimated 6.00 carats. Overall weight approx. 62.77 grams, made in platinum. Circa 2010s.
