VIDEO The original moretti adriatic series in 18 kt yellow gold for men and women, ruby on the turban, oven-baked enamel as per ancient Fiuman tradition. Baked enamel, rigorously black and white as imposed by age-old tradition, is resistant to fresh or salt water, perfumes and solvents. The enamelling technique is very complex and requires a great deal of technical skill; the enamel would in practice be a glass paste fused into the jewel that will make it unique and long-lasting.

A short history, where does the Adriatic Moorish jewel originate? This type of moor seems to have originated in the Near East, worn by women on their ears. The continuous contacts of seafarers with eastern lands for their trade contributed to the introduction of Moorish earrings in Rijeka and later in Venice. This probably occurred before the Venetian Republic settled in Rijeka after more or less bloody battles (May 1508). The Moors, like the ones reproduced here, were in the shape of a Moor’s head with a Muslim turban, in gold and enamel, and soon conquered the entire Dalmatian littoral. It was only later that the crescent moon and star, referring to Turkish rule, was applied to some models. Today, workshops that make them are very rare.
