IF one is looking to invest in unique yet affordable jewelry, Oro Italia Fine Jewelry might be a great place to look.
Last Dec. 8, Oro Italia opened its second store at SM Seaside City Cebu. Originally from Zamboanga, the place proprietor Candice Yu–Yap calls home, Oro Italia opened its first store in Cebu earlier this year at Ayala Center Cebu.
Yap sources the pieces abroad and adds her own touch by mixing and matching them. A lover of jewelry herself, she got the idea to start her own jewelry business when people started noticing the pieces she would wear and asking where she got them.
Although Oro Italia specializes in Italian gold jewelry, the store also has gold items from Japan, Hong Kong and Saudi Arabia, as well as diamond and pearl sets.
Yap said Oro Italia’s jewels are not just sophisticated accessories but also great investment pieces. Oro Italia updates its collection from time to time so there’s always something new to check out.
For a limited time only, all gold items are 50 percent off and SM Advantage and Prestige cardholders get an extra 10 percent off. This promotion is exclusive to the SM Seaside branch only. Oro Italia offers credit card installment and layaway plans.
