Clara Stones pays homage to Orlando’s column, Dubrovnik’s oldest public statue, with a luxury capsule collection celebrating its 600th anniversary.

For centuries the stone statue of this medieval knight, also known as Roland, was the most important symbol of freedom, independence and order in Republic of Ragusa. Orlando’s forearm holding a sword and the base under his feet was the standard measurement for fabric called Ragusan cubit, measuring exactly 51,2 cm.

Inspired by antique jewelry used as an amulet, a talisman or a lucky charm, Orlando collection tells a story rich of symbols and meaning.

Luxury charms, pendants, earrings and necklaces are made with Clara Stones favorite Adriatic coral and signature silver and 18kt gold.
