Why Tbilisi?

If the aim of this blog is to uncover hidden gems in the jewellery world, then I’ve struck gold in Tbilisi.

Like most of the best discoveries, it really wasn’t planned. A trip to Georgia had been on my family radar for a long time. I knew the food was good and I’d heard that the scenery was breathtaking.  Georgia is a must for foodies, walkers and hikers and wine buffs. But it should also be on the radar of jewellery mavens. Its almost a crime that the two magnificent jewellery collections that I feature on this blog are so unknown outside of the country.

For those of you who worry that travelling in Georgia could be an adventure too far, please don’t.  The country has a well-developed tourist infrastructure: when it was part of the former Soviet Union it gained renown throughout the “Empire” as a holiday hot-spot. Now its more open to the rest of the world: and that world is starting to visit in droves. Don’t put Georgia off until later; go there before it gets spoiled.
