The Florin: more than a simple ornament, an authentic talisman! By ancient custom in Florence it is customary to give a florin at birth, baptism or other important occasions; in the Middle Ages, the pure gold coin depicting Santo Giovanni Battista, patron of the city, represented a real treasure, an auspicious amulet for fitter life and even today it is a precious gift and a wish for prosperity: “ A Florin today for a thousand florins tomorrow!”
On one side depicted the lily, symbol of the city, and on the other St. John the Baptist, the patron saint of Florence.
Florin made with the lost wax technique.
Handcrafted jewel, every single imperfection is a distinctive feature born out of a handmade work.
