In the final scene of Verdi’s magnificent setting of Shakespeare’s tragedy Othello, the protagonist uses his own dagger to take his life in anguish over the jealous rage that led him to murder his beloved, the innocent Desdemona.
Our pin-pendant is a reproduction of the dagger worn by the great tenor Francesco Tamagno when he debuted
the role of Othello at the opera’s premiere on the stage of La Scala in Milan in 1887.
Inspired by the original image on left.
