Fiori del Tempo



A jewel box as big as a wardrobe or a jewellery shop as little as a cupboard?

Either way you look at it, this little gem (no pun intended) is more than meets the eye. Handmade by Frencesco Deidda, his sterling silver and gold-plated jewellery – pretty pieces in simple but covetable designs inspired by the Renaissance and Art Deco – fill every nook and cranny with a wide variety of pieces and colourful stones to suit every taste, age or outfit. Materials used range from semi-precious and precious stones, freshwater pearls, resin and plexi. Better still, it's all very easy on your wallet.

Choose from classic freshwater pearl earrings from around 6 euro a pair to gold plated antique replicas that go from around 20 euro to huge romantic blooming resin rose earrings for 30. If you're in the area, you can also visit the slightly bigger boutique in Via de' Ginori.
