Since Valentine’s day is approaching, let’s talk about Italian jewelry. When I first saw these earrings made by Italian designer Viola Foggi, I was impressed by their originality and by the use of different materials. What makes them unique is the black thread that creates an interesting contrast against the golden background. Viola Foggi has her own workshop in Florence where she designs and creates jewelry in gold and silver, with precious and semi-precious stones. Her creations can be purchased in many Italian stores and online.
