Do you remember those kindergarten classes spent making masterpieces out of pasta and glue? Pasta art just got a lot more sophisticated thanks to Delicacies Jewelry, who recently released a line of pasta-inspired sterling silver necklaces. The collection, entitled Al Dente—which is the Italian term for perfectly-cooked pasta that’s firm to the bite—was created in collaboration with Barilla. Each piece is based on your favorite pasta shapes, from a bowtie-shaped farfalle to the corkscrew-like Rotini.
Working with charitable organizations such as Food Bank for New York City, Share Our Strength, No Kid Hungry, and New York’s City Harvest, this is a carb you won’t feel guilty about. Every purchase provides 20 meals to help feed the hungry.
When describing their motif, the brand goes deep into a passionate pasta-mythos that even borders on the spiritual. The Rotini necklace is said to promote “passion, happiness, and renewal” while the Penne Rigate piece promotes “passion, focus, and creativity”. Collectively, the pasta pendants are “a reminder of what it means to be human.” Delicacies go on to explain how “Pasta is a cross-cultural phenomenon; a food of communal, familial suppers and quiet comfort evenings. Pasta embodies the bond of human history and commonality. Wear it to remember ages past, and to draw on that history when you feel the world coming unraveled.”
Head over to the Delicacies Jewelry website where you can even take a quiz to discover your “spirit ingredient.”
