It’s been raining in Rome this week, so it was inevitable that I would eventually wander into Off, the jewelry store just up the street from me, in Monti. If the sun was refusing to shine, then I needed to see some sparkle. Even if I didn’t really need to buy anything for myself.
Of course I always convince myself, when I walk in, that I’m looking for a gift for someone else. And, to tell you the truth I usually am. As most of my family and friends can tell you, these baubles look awfully familiar. Any time I’m heading back go the States, or when Christmas or a birthday is coming up, I can count on this store.
Why? Well, I guess the designs are just the right mix of classic and creative. And they go from fuchsia beads to snow white pearls. Silver or gold, dangly or sculptural. Really, it’s one stop shopping. And the prices are extremely reasonable. (Well, not your present. Your present was really expensive. And by you, I mean who ever is reading this who got a gift from me.)
And if you don’t quite see what you want? (Like that's gonna happen) They are always very happy to make things to order.
