Ahhhh…Italy, you always surprise me. I had been touring the countryside just outside of Valenza in the beautiful hills of Piemonte when I came across the little outdoor market place. It was a picturesque setting of artisans and their wares. While most of the crafts would appease any seasoned tourist I was looking for one thing, the best Italian crafted jewelry I could find. I knew the dollar was strong and the Euro was weak.
Stauer knows how to shop the market, literally. It was here I stumbled upon a small jewelers shop and discovered the work of the Ferraris family. From the hands of a true craftsman I found an Italian hidden treasure. From an assortment of thoughtful designs I assembled a stunning collection all set in 18k rose gold. Each matching piece has the highest collectors grade amethyst gems matched with radiant diamonds.
They are created as testaments to a patient art form with the hands of a true master. Each piece resonates the simplicity and elegance of the Italian countryside where they were born. I am glad I stopped when I did or this hidden treasure would have never found its way into our hearts and yours.
