This brooch is very lovely, and it shows how delicate a Florenza jewelry design is. I have seen various color combinations for this piece, as well as many unsigned copies. When buying this, always note the dangles. There should be three of them, and these often get broken off (like mine, but glued back) or go missing. Stones also often go missing, but they are an easier fix!

    Do you happen to know if it was a common practice at Florenza to have signature on some pieces but not others?

    @davyd286 yes, I'm aware that there are unsigned Florenza pieces :) but this one has true unsigned copies; the quality and details are nowhere near Florenza's.

    Thanks. I sometimes see pieces that look like they could be Florenza but I'd need to learn more about that maker to be able to make a judgement.

    No problem davyd286! Yeah, I need some work in that department too since I don't deal with Florenza too often. When in doubt, you can post photos at this website ( and the page owner will try to help you identify it :)
