Bring cash and be prepared to be amazed! The handiwork of his jewelry was top notch and is truly a lost art form. I bought my sister’s Christmas present, in July!

The prices are very reasonable for handcrafted jewellery and especially something that is made on the premises. There is a wide selection of items for all budgets. I really like to support a traditional craft and not just another tourist tat shop.

Loved learning about this family and their traditional Filigran jewelry. Beautiful, intricate works of art. Super friendly family (now on the 4th generation) excited to talk about their history and art. So glad I found their little shop. Found a couple of perfect gifts.

No - I felt it was not very expensive - designs each piece and the filigree is a lost art - I purchased two pairs of earrings and a pendant - happy I did - it’s the real deal
