Serafini Enrico Florence, 1913-68 Following his arts studies in the Instituto d’arte di Porta Romana in Florence, he made his debut as goldsmith by creating souvenirs: mostly reproductions of Donatello’s bronzes. Towards the end of the 1930s, he designed and created jewels that he sold to various jewelers. He opened up his own shop in 1947, in Piazza Santa Felicita 4 in Florence; he soon became popular in his own city and even abroad - particularly in the United States, where he obtained orders from renowned jewelers (Tiffany, Black Starr & Goram). During the 1950s he created jewels that were characterized by great sculptural qualities; in 1957 he was the first Italian jeweler to win the Diamonds International Award - an award that would contribute to increase his fame abroad. His clietele could boast of illustrious personalities such as Adlai Stevenson, Mrs. Stravos Niarchos, Countess Consuelo Crespi, Marquis Emilio Pucci and Ira von Fürstenberg. During the 1960s his jewels were increasingly inspired by abstract themes, following general jewelry trends, and were signed either in full as ENRICO SERAFINI or as E. SERAFINI. His untimely death in 1968 unfortunately prevented his work from being better known and having a wider diffusion.
