Santa Rosalia

Sicily Catania apr 15 214_1775px_sRGB

'A great boat (70 ft long) drawn by 56 mules in two rows, mounted by twenty eight postillions dressed in gold and silver stuffs, with great plumes of ostrich feathers in their hats' is the writer Mary Taylor Simeti's description of Santa Rosalía's procession. The saint saved the city of Palermo from plague, and now annually on the evening of July 14 the city is covered in arches of flowers, fountains play in front of the palace and fireworks light up the evening sky. The following day the archbishop says mass in the cathedral of Palermo.
Cassandra designed the Santa Rosalia ring which sits beautifully alongside showstopping cocktail jewels.
