We visited this shop after reading reviews on the Tripadvisor website. We were greeted by a lovely smiling lady who explained to us how the jewellery was made. You pay by the weight of the pendant and can purchase a chain should you wish. A...More

Literally a mom and pop shop tucked into the tiny streets of Diocletian's palace. A little searching down narrow alleyways will yield authentic Croatian jewelry made here on the premises. The sterling, filigree ball shaped charms (modeled after antique military buttons) are perfect for hanging...More

Bring cash and be prepared to be amazed! The handiwork of his jewelry was top notch and is truly a lost art form. I bought my sister’s Christmas present, in July!

Sweetest guy ever. I felt so good buying earrings for my wife here. It’s cash only! An ATM is right outside the door. Place is small but friendly. Wife loved her gifts.

The prices are very reasonable for handcrafted jewellery and especially something that is made on the premises. There is a wide selection of items for all budgets. I really like to support a traditional craft and not just another tourist tat shop.

Loved learning about this family and their traditional Filigran jewelry. Beautiful, intricate works of art. Super friendly family (now on the 4th generation) excited to talk about their history and art. So glad I found their little shop. Found a couple of perfect gifts.

No - I felt it was not very expensive - designs each piece and the filigree is a lost art - I purchased two pairs of earrings and a pendant - happy I did - it’s the real deal
