Hi there! On my blog I love to share my passion and enthusiasm for jewelry with you! I have a long background filled with international experience in the jewelry branch and hope to deliver you many hours of fun, reading and watching amazing pieces. Combined with fashion or with themes that play in all of our lives. Children, happiness, gifts, memories…A piece of jewelry is often a piece of art. But it becomes only valuable when emotions are added to it.

I have lived a long time in Italy and you might catch that here and there in my love for Italian jewelry, but I have learned since starting this blog, that there is so much more out there in the world! I discover new brands, new markets and new visions almost every week. And I ADORE to share that with you!
