Blackamoor jewellery

In jewellery, the Moor of Venice - Blackamoors or “moretto” inspired by Shakespeare’s Othello - are mostly brooches depicting the head or the bust of Africans wearing turbans, characteristic clothes and rich jewels. Typically carved from ebony or onyx, they are set with gold leaf and various coloured stones.

Blackamoor jewels were originally Venetian souvenirs which became popular in the late 1920’s and the early 1930’s. The Blackamoor jewels from the Venetian jeweller Nardi - whose store is located Piazza San Marco - are the most renowned and sought-after. Royals as well as famous people such as Grace Kelly, Ernest Hemingway, Barbara Hutton or Liz Taylor have possessed a Blackamoor brooch as a token of love.
