Oro Due



Classic designs by this traditional family-run goldsmith.

On a side street between the Ponte Vecchio and the Uffizi Gallery is the quaint and classic Oro Due, a family-run goldsmiths workshop. Working in the traditional Florentine manner, the young Lorenzo and his father create the gold pieces in the workshop that you can spot behind the counter, while sister Veronica helps customers choose and try on pieces.

All the work is of 18 kt white, yellow or pink gold, priced according to weight, as the tradition goes and is often embellished with precious stones. Find simple, elegant and both contemporary and traditional designs such as tiny, vermillion coloured coral-branch pendants or earrings, diamond studs, delicate bracelets, Florentine style rings and very friendly service.

There are also some unusual one-off pieces such as real antique Roman coins set in a gold pendant.
