In her debut memoir and cookbook, Susan Gravely celebrates 40 years as Founder and Creative Director of VIETRI. Italy on a Plate is an exploration into what makes Italy so magical: its staggering beauty, unparalleled style, artistic legacy, and incredible food. The close friends Gravely has made during her years of Italian travel have graciously shared their homes and their favorite family recipes, and this book gives a culinary tour of Italy's flavors with recipes you will enjoy with loved ones for years to come. 

The Perla Small Pearls Necklace is a striking, unique piece with a wonderful story. VIETRI Founder Susan Gravely came across a beautiful mesh and pearl necklace in Milan in 1985. She asked her dear and talented Florentine friend, Tita Bosio, if she might be able to recreate it so that VIETRI could sell something similar. Tita sourced the pearls very easily, but the mesh netting seemed hard to find. She scoured markets and shops to no avail. Not to be deterred, Tita eventually found what she was looking for in an automobile repair shop! She created the bestselling necklaces for VIETRI for many years, and eventually the product was retired. We are delighted to bring the fun, costume jewelry necklaces back, and they are now handmade by Tita's daughter-in-law.

Product Dimensions:

Book: 11"L, 9"W
Necklace: 18"L
Tubing: Polyester Mesh
Pearls: Plastic

The black tubular mesh used to hold the pearls is made of polyester/viscose horsehair and is often utilized in the hat industry. The pearls are plastic spheres of various sizes dipped in a pearlescent finish. Their light weight is optimal for the delicate mesh casing that encloses them. Please note the pearls are not real pearls and should be considered costume jewelry.
