In the fourth circle of the Inferno, we meet the avaricious and the prodigal; those who were either too greedy or too stringent. Dante writes them a cruel, and somewhat comical punishment. they are forced to dance in circles, rolling immense weights by the force of their chests. Naturally, when they bump into each other they are jettisoned in the opposite direction, having to roll their weights back the other way.
La Fortuna Necklace is inspired by the haphazard nature of chance, as it spins one way and then the other. The first Alighieri piece, it is designed to be worn on your travels to bring you luck and courage. The gold round shows the marks of its adventures, a little molten and rough around the edges, always ready for the next big adventure.
