Micro mosaic jewelry is a weakness of mine...when in Florence last week, I found some lovely examples on the Ponte Vecchio.
The shop of Bernardo Antichita stands out as one of the best sources for estate and antique jewelry on the bridge.
Don't get me wrong, there is a lot of fabulous jewelry in other areas as well!
But, the Ponte Vecchio offers door to door rare pieces just tempting you through those glass walls...
Price points are usually well out of my range, but one can usually find a unique piece to call your own.
Bernardo Antichita captures my heart completely with his window displays.
Those lovely green moire displays offsetting some of the best antique jewelry I have ever seen.
I love the sprinkling of coral counterbalancing that incredible cuff.
...a carved coconut flask., some early roman glass....all perfect additions to a curiosity cabinet!
website where all of these items may be purchased...just browsing on line is a treat in itself! ...he accepts paypal..!!!
