In the warm weather, I may not feel like shopping for shearlings, but jewelry knows no season! I am enamored with the Roman coins and the jewelry that is made with them. Whether you prefer a simple setting, or a more elaborate one, the ancient Roman coins will always make you feel young!
Here is another example of a Roman coin made into jewelry.
This bracelet was designed and made for one of my shopping clients. The leather combined with the gold and the coin make it a very casual, hip piece. The goldsmith drew the design as we watched, and the clients were very pleased with the results.
On the 5th floor (without an elevator) in a 16th century building in the center of Florence, is every jewelry lover’s dream.
The goldsmith’s workshop produces original pieces in 18k gold (yellow, white and rose) jewelry, with or without gemstones in the typical Florentine tradition, as well as more modern pieces.
I have my eye on this gorgeous gold bracelet called Corteccia di pino (bark of the pine), an original design by the goldsmith.
If you have old jewelry you no longer wear, why not have the goldsmith use your gold and gemstones to create something beautiful you will wear? My mother’s 1060’s emerald ring was transformed into a new ring that I love!
I have been given permission to take my shopping clients to this workshop. We need to make an appointment ahead of time, but for the serious jewelry shopper, this is a must! Prices here have thrilled my clients!

This is a lovely website. I will mention it to a tour group that is going to Italy in the fall!
