Leave a sign, with Humilis religious jewellery
“The Lord said: pass through the midst of the city, in the midst of Jerusalem, and mark a Tau on the foreheads of the men who sigh and weep.” (Ez. 9:4)
The Tau is the last letter of the Hebrew alphabet and has a strong symbolic and religious value. Its meaning is related to God's love for mankind and its salvation, which is the fulfillment of God's word. Its history has very ancient origins and it’s also found in the book of Ezekiel, where it is narrated that God sent his angel to Jerusalem to stamp the Tau on the foreheads of the oppressed. The Tau is therefore also a sign of protection against the forces of evil, which is why St. Francis of Assisi chose it as his signature.
The Tau of Humilis comes to life precisely from the history and values that St. Francis of Assisi left to posterity. His signature, engraved in the jewellery of the collection named Segno (“sign” in Italian), is unique: the graphic representation of the Tau is designed with a special curvature of the vertical stem and horizontal ends for a clean and linear effect.
The characteristics of the Segno collection
The Tau of the Segno collection is represented in rings, necklaces, bracelets, earrings, and pendants, all made of 18-carat gold and 925 sterling silver. The latter are enriched by the addition of cubic zirconia, while those in gold boast precious stones such as rubies, sapphires, emeralds, and diamonds. The colours of the stones set in Humilis jewellery visibly refer to the natural elements that St. Francis mentions in the Canticle of the Creatures: red represents fire, blue water, white air, and green earth.
In addition to the version embellished with stones, the Segno collection is also composed of simpler yet elegant and refined jewels such as the silver Tau cross - with a rough texture to the eye but smooth to the touch thanks to a special metal processing called satin-finishing - or the silver earrings with zircons - with a clip fastening and the Tau that shines and frames the face.
Also available in the Segno line are multiple bracelets, both in gold and silver, suitable both for those looking for a modest style or for those who want something more elaborate.
