"La Bohème" Bracelet
This beautiful sterling silver band, formed into one continuous surface of a Möbius strip, is finely engraved with the words of Puccini's beautiful aria, "Mi chiamo Mimi" ("They call me Mimi").
The elliptical shape sits comfortably about the hand, while the form itself displays unusual geometric properties.
The shape is known as a Möbius strip, after the German mathematician August Ferdinand Möbius [1790-1868]. It represents the seeming paradox of a plane without end, or one of infinite length. As such it became accepted as a symbol for infinity, an appropriate and symbolic form for these memorable inscriptions.
Ellipse: 2 13/16" x 2 1/12" [72mm x 64mm]
Width: 3/16"- 5/16" [5 - 8mm]
One of the most popular operas of all time, Puccini’s La Bohème premiered at Turin’s Teatro Regino in 1896. The work, renowned for its beautiful arias and emotional intensity, opens in the Parisian garret of a group of young artists and writers. This is where the poet Rodolfo meets his neighbor Mimì, who knocks on the door and asks to borrow a candle. Thus begins a fateful – and unforgettable – relationship as the two struggle to sustain their love against the challenges of poverty, jealousy and physical decline.
