Got for my mother on her birthday a few years back. We were both so impressed by it's beauty and the thought that went into making it! Made me an opera bracelet Fan Girl, can't get enough of them! Thanks Cindy for your talent and inspiration!
Part of the "Inspired by…" series, the Violetta Valéry Bracelet is inspired by the unforgettable character from La Traviata by Verdi. Consumed by a life of pleasure and reaching the end of her days the beautiful but fragile courtesan opens herself to the possibility of true love and all the joy and pain it entails.
Glass pearls, hearts and flowers reflect Violetta's delicacy, while hints of purple symbolize her name. A camellia charm signifies the flower she gives Alfredo at the beginning of their love affair and a cameo is the portrait that she gives him to remember her by upon her death. A large heart with purple stones represents "love" which is engraved on the back in English, French (the setting of the opera) and Italian (the language of the opera).
All "Inspired By..." Series Bracelets come with a card that identifies the symbolism of the charms and colors used.
I received the Violeta Opera bracelet that I'd ordered yesterday. It is gorgeous - everything I'd hoped for! The presentation is beaitiful, too. I know my friend will *love* this bracelet!
Just saw the opera La Traviata on March 11th. I think the bracelet beautifully reflects Violetta. Just love wearing it.
The Violetta Valery bracelet was a Valentine's Day gift--to me from me ;) It arrived within 3 days of placing the order and was very carefully packaged. The presentation was extra-special, with unexpected little treats tucked inside the shipping box...such a lovely touch. The bracelet itself is exactly as pictured--delicate, ethereal and quintessentially feminine. Ms. Battisti clearly takes great care in the designing and crafting of each bracelet. I'm proud to call this one mine.
This bracelet is absolutely lovely. It's very elegant and so special. The packaging was beautiful as well. I'll definitely purchase again!
It is not only perfectly describing the highlights of the opera, but it has also the best way to put it on - unlike others that have to go through the hand. I am extremely pleased with this, and will definitely buy some more!
I bought this bracelet for my daughter as a graduation gift. She is a Classical Vocal Performance major who is soon going to graduate school in South Carolina. She won a Concerto Competition performing an Aria from La Traviata. She has wanted one of these bracelets for some time so I thought it fitting to purchase one for this occasion. Violetta's bracelet seemed the perfect choice! When I got the box I was so excited-but that doesn't begin to cover the feelings I experienced when I opened the box. Inside was a little gift of chocolate and tea with a lovely thank you for purchasing the bracelet. Underneath was a second gift bag with the bracelet. When I picked it up I could feel the weight of the bracelet-this isn't some piece of inexpensive costume jewelry. The seed pearls and delicate lavender colored beads with the charms representing Violetta's character are perfectly chosen. I can't wait to see her face when she opens this. I know she will treasure it!!
So pretty. So delicate. So romantic. A beautiful Valentine's gift from my husband.
My daughter loved this pretty bracelet as a memory of a favorite opera! Bracelet was just as advertised and shipped right away! Very satisfied with this purchase!
Beautiful bracelet. Presentation was top notch.I will definitely order again
I ordered this and immediately loved it, so sparkly and with lots of different charms to look at. Very different to anything else out there and has been complimented several times already!
