Imperial hair grip

by Ivan Barbato Jewellery

I wanted to create an object from another era, something that could be distinguished from the pieces that are usually made in jewelry, something that could be worn at the time of Empress Maria Theresa of Habsburg as you could wear today.
The jewel was born thinking of one of the aesthetic details that most characterized the ‘700: “Hair styling”.
Both men and women at that time gave great emphasis to their appearance, their clothing. It was the century of a new, particular, unmistakable fashion, the face was lightened with powder, wearing silk stockings, shoes with buckles, but above all wigs were used to give shape to often extravagant hairstyles.
For some women, the hairpin was an object of everyday life and, if turned into jewelry, it could be worthy of an empress …

Technical description:

Made of 925/1000 silver, with enamels and freshwater pearl, the jewel was handmade by modeling the wax and, successively, after obtaining the metal shape through the lost wax casting, it was finished, polished and enamelled.
