Falsi Gioelli Florence Italy

 Via dei Tavolini #5R,
Assistants making jewelry

Here's a fun tip for shopping in Florence. There is a great place to buy colorful and hip jewelry called "Falsi Gioelli" (False Jewels). It's a place that we return to again and again when we are in Bella Firenze. Located in the heart of Florence at two locations: The original shop is steps away from the San Lorenzo Market on Via dei Ginori #34R and a couple of years ago a second shop opened on Via dei Tavolini #5R, midway between Piazza del Duomo and Piazza della Signoria.

Peering into the front window you will be drawn to the modern costume jewelry that comes in a myriad of shapes and a rainbow array of colored plastics. The range is an eye-popping fanciful adventure. Pure fun. Great gifts for you and your friends that like something original and innovative. It's a hard task to choose from the dazzling gem-like plastic jewelry: tantilizing glowing cuff bracelets, beaded necklaces, earrings and more. The best is that the prices won't break the bank and you'll have so much fun just being surrounded by sparkling shapes that call to you, "Pick me, No-oo me..." Oooh the choices you'll be presented with.

Silvia, the innovative creator is the founder, whose dream began with a concept about 21 years ago. She is a self-taught jewelry designer (talk about inspiring) and you will see her and her assistants at the rear of the store busily crafting pieces of jewelry (this makes a visit worthwhile even if you are just browsing.) Silvia's jewelry can take on several themes. Her English garden collection combines silk flowers, colored beads and buttons for a very feminine romantic feel. Some of her other jewelry feels trendy, full fashion and bold and sometimes futuristic. Multi-rowed wire bracelets with jewel -toned and facetted beads shine bright as do her signature plexi-colored cuff bracelets. She has such a unique and innovative way of threading beads & plastic colored shapes into fun necklaces, earrings, hair adornments and more. Can you tell I get excited about this place? Do drop in on your next visit to Florence, Italy. Love Falsi Gioelli!
