Classic Romanesque composition features a large lake blue intaglio, often called a reverse cameo because the image is incised and etched into the surface of the glass. Our intaglio is handmade, using the very same process used by Bohemian glassmakers of the last centuries. Bezel set stones of faceted blue crystal ovals, indicolite squares and peacock iris squares accent the intaglio and chain. Two deep aqua pressed art glass ovals of the chain have scrollwork settings. Heavy convex cable chain completes this substantial and ancient look. Metal finish: bronze. Signed and copyrighted Sweet Romance USA.
Shelley's comments: The Sweet Romance NeoClassics Collection celebrates the art passion of Catherine the Great, blending power and femininity with artworks of classical antiquity. It is a look that merges antiquarian riches with a totally modern presentation. This particular has been favored since its 11th century beginnings.. The jewelry and art wealth amassed during Catherines reign contributed to the stature and power of Russias of the late 1700s
