I'm smitten with the night beauties of these cobalt beads, luminous hearts, and iridescent stars. They honor our tears and remind us of love's call to persevere in the face of darkness.
Part of the "Inspired by…" series, the E Lucevan le Stelle Bracelet is inspired by Mario's tragic lament awaiting execution in Act 3 of Puccini's Tosca. As he recalls his nights of love with Tosca he realizes he will lose his life just as he had begun to live it.
Deep blue beads and iridescent stars evoke Mario and Tosca's starlit nights of love- further represented by heart and star charms. A watery tear drop encasing a rosebud symbolizes Mario's grief at the loss of his life when it had only just begun to flower.
All "Inspired By..." Series Bracelets come with a card that identifies the symbolism of the charms and colors used.
I love this bracelet! I purchased it as part of the Tosca Gift Set, so please see my complete and detailed review there.
I purchased this one for myself - E luceavan le Stella is one oft favorite arias from Tosca and this bracelet is a stunning reminder of how romantic this story is. Wonderful I will definitely be making other purchases!
