The jewelry company Fratelli Peruzzi, located in Florence, Italy, was founded by the silversmith Giuseppe Peruzzi in 1860. Peruzzi is renown for creating beautiful one-of-a-kind ornate 800 silver jewelry and cameos. For over 150 years, this family-owned shop has operated in the same tiny building on a small corner in Florence, Italy, with just a few artisans; the tradition of ancient artisan craftsmanship is still evident in all their work.
