The Over-Thinker Hair Tie tells the story of Dante's self-doubt. He questions his ability to travel the course. He asks,
But I, why should I go there,
and who grants it?
I am not Aeneas, I am not Paul
Neither I nor any man
thinks me fit for this.
So if I commit myself to go,
I fear that I might be going in folly
Virgil reassures him with a dose of tough love; instructing him to stop over-thinking, to push his cowardice aside, and to go forth through the dark wood.

Alighieri is a collection of jewellery inspired by Dante Alighieri’s ‘Divine Comedy’; each piece corresponds to one of the poet’s 100 poems. Founded by Rosh Matani in 2014, every piece is handcrafted in London's Hatton Garden by a family-run business through the process of lost-wax casting.
