Window Shopping on the Ponte Vecchio June 12 2016


When in Florence any lover of jewellery can’t help but be drawn to the Ponte Vecchio, where all the classy jewellers gather. 
So, naturally, that’s where we found ourselves, drooling over the abundance of delicious gioielli displayed in the shop windows there. Italy is famous for the quality of its stone carving, and Florence didn’t disappoint. There were Cameos, Corals and Pietra Dura aplenty. Note: Lots of GOLD! Chunky charm bracelets and heavy lockets...cute bracelets up-cycled from cufflinks...an excitingly colourful feast for our hungry eyes.
