Unique Silver Jewellery

Italian Designer Jewelry from Maremma

Unique silver jewellery from a small silver and goldsmith workshop in Maremma, Italy: handmade unique jewelry that turns heads made by an undiscovered artisan in an undiscovered part of Italy.

These stunning pieces of silver jewelry have each been designed and handmade by Fabio Pallanti, a Florentine goldsmith now living and working in la Maremma.

His work ranges from very fine jewelry in the Florentine style and his own contemporary designs in solid 18k gold (you can see some of his creations in gold in the Italian 18k gold jewelry page - link at bottom of page) to these wonderful designs in solid sterling (92.5%) silver.

He told me that when he was young, he had wanted to study at art college, but never did. Starting instead an silversmith apprenticeship early age of fourteen as his father and uncle had done before him. You won't find folders of drawings in his workshop as he rarely designs first on paper. His hands follow the designs he holds in his head that have taken form from the individual gemstones with which he works.

Unique silver jewellery: Italian sterling silver bracelets - cuff

 

From extremely fine filigree Florentine rings and Italian gold necklaces to abstract and contemporary pieces in silver, all of his jewelry radiates the natural talent of this man. I have never met a more unpretentious and down to earth Italian jewelry designer. But then that was just one of the reasons I am sure why I fell in love with him!

The unusual and distinctive nature of his designs and the quality of his workmanshio have built him a loyal and longstanding following of Florentine customers who return to him year after year for those special birthday and anniversary gifts. I hope you enjoy browsing here some of Fabio's work. Although I see his creations in the making every day, they never cease to captivate me.

Unique silver jewellery: Italian earrings with style

These Italian earrings with black tourmaline gemstones are anything but conventional and make a dramatic statement. Fabio hand cut out by saw each of the internal design details, soldered these pieces to matching background pieces of sold sheet silver, made the bezel settings for each of the black tourmaline cabochons, and the earrings inserts and soldered the whole together. Then oxidised the silver to give the dark colouring to the centre design, and polished each earring to a magnificent shine.
