“Buy all of your jewelry only from Jean Saade!”
Reviewed November 15, 2013

I received the most beautiful ring for my birthday from Jean Saade!! It is a combination of both white gold and rose gold with diamonds and it is sooooo beautiful. I have received more complements on this ring than any piece of jewelry I have ever worn! Jean is one of the most charming and humble people I have had the pleasure meeting and his jewelry is gorgeous, unique and really just perfect!

“Beautiful Florentine jewelry”
Reviewed November 11, 2013

Because Florence is best known for its gold jewelry (and leather products), we thought we'd shop for a pair of earrings for my husband's sister, Amanda, (and maybe find something special for me as well). Given that there are hundreds of jewelry shops all over Florence, mostly tourist traps on the Ponte Vecchio, we were a bit overwhelmed as to where to go to find a beautiful gift at a reasonable price.

While we were finishing our shopping at Goccia shoes (I wrote a review for them as well), we asked Nino, the sales associate, if he knew of a good jewelry shop where we could find some small gifts for family back home. He sent us to Jean Saade, where his mother is a long-time client. He said they would take care of us, and they did…

Not five minutes later, Carlos, one of Jean Saade's sales associates, came to where we were to personally escort us to the shop, which was just a few blocks away. The shop is tiny and located near the Ponte Vecchio, but just far enough away from the swarms of tourists. Each piece of jewelry in the shop is a piece of art, and it was obvious that they take pride in their work. They carry both traditional Florentine style jewelry and contemporary. Both are designed and hand crafted by Jean Saade. The owner of the shop, Jean, and Carlos, helped us find the perfect gifts, and there was no hard sell or pressure to purchase. I ended up buying a gorgeous sterling silver St. Francis pendant and chain, that was also a Jean Saade design. The craftsmanship is perfection and we didn't end up spending a fortune on our purchases.

As I wear my pendant, I have nothing but warm and fuzzy associations of our final days in Italy, walking along the ancient, cobblestone streets of Florence. I look forward to our next trip back, and we will definitely revisit this shop.

“Great Experience”
Reviewed September 29, 2013

We were referred to Jean by his cousin Franco Fonati who owns Dante Leather Factory. Jean was very professional and his work is stunning. I bought a ring that he had designed and hand made and it is beautiful! We also bought a Florentine necklace and are very happy with both purchases. Jean was helpful and modest and very proud of his work and rightly so... Would definitely recommend him and his shop.....

“Ladies Love Jean”
Reviewed September 21, 2013 via mobile

We were referred to Jean by a Fiorentino and know that the referral was a good one. Jean and Carlos are very genuine and knowledgeable jewelers. Pass on the traps and visit these gentlemen.

“exceptionaly professional artisian”
Reviewed August 22, 2013

Jean is one of the most knowledgeable and creative jewelry designers I have had the pleasure of meeting. He has a small intimate shop that makes you proud to own one of his unique designs. His honest approach to business should be a model for all to follow.
