What a special day this is. Moms are special!
There is a lot of excitement in the air and at AF Jewelers we have been busy preparing a special event.
We all have a special woman in our life, someone who deserves to be celebrated today!
That’s what Mother’s Day is all about: to show love and appreciation to all the remarkable women who gave their heart to their children and to show them how important they are.
So if you are like us at AF Jewelers and have many women in your life whom you would like to make feel special, come to our store and see the magnificent Buccellati Collection.
We are presenting the exceptional Limited Collection from Tuesday April 26 until May 16, 2017 at our location at 1309 Main Street downtown Saint Helena.
We are showcasing for the first time in our store a selection of silver pieces, all handcrafted in Italy by skilled silversmiths.
Centerpieces, tableware and giftware in new designs and patterns and produced through fine chiseling.
In the jewelry section we display the Macri Giglio Collection and the Opera Color.
Giglio is the Italian word for lily, the most ancient flower used as a symbol of love. The Macri Giglio collection offers an openwork technique set with precious diamonds in these beautiful cuff bracelets and rings.
The Opera Color collection of necklaces, earrings and rings inaugurates a new chapter in the Buccellati tradition introducing the House Logo in new nuances of mother-of-pearl, black onyx and pink opal
