Ring Maestro Alessandro Dari

In Florence I had the unexpected pleasure of discovering the museum-workshop of Alessandro Dari. Drawn in by the exquisite rings in the window, I was in awe of the goldsmith and sculptor’s collection, which was previously unknown to me and coincidentally in the neighborhood I stayed in. Little did I know that Dari is quite accomplished in his work, and was at one point the chosen artist of the Vatican.

The museum-workshop was divided by thematic collections Dari produced over the past 30 years, ranging from Gothic to sacred art, crowns to butterflies. What makes Dari’s rings so special is that they have such a sculptural quality that is not commonly seen or replicated – truly one-of-a-kind pieces of art. Even more impressive is that Dari is entirely self-taught, having studied ancient goldsmith techniques extensively. Most rings are available to purchase and range in price from about 800€ on up. Explore the website to see the rings up close, and certainly stop by for a visit if you’re in Florence.
