G orgeous old Italian octagonal Micromosaic. Scene of Two Doves nesting together in the folds of a red cloak. The Mosaica is embedded into slick. Solid 18K Rose Gold frame. Rue Art lover's jewelry form, t. His ring is unisex and will look great on the fingers of Men and Women if the size is correct. Late 18th- early 19th century this piece is one the rare examples of this beautiful Art form of so called Roman design with multitude of tiny pieces of semiprecious stones or colored glass, called tesserae , pieced together to form a picture. All micro parts are held in place with special cement on Glass or Stone background plate (invisible in our case for the back side is closed). The final product was then waxed and polished, and the finished jewelry piece was much smoother and finer in appearance than the regular larger scaled mosaic. Uch designs gained widespread popularity in Europe in the first half of 18th century. I\m not sure if the tesserae on this ring is made of Stone or Glass, they are numerous, colorful and much less than 1 mm wide pieces which were painstakingly hand assembled and placed into a pattern exactly as was described above.

From casual distance of 50 cm it. Appears to be almost a fluid picture with no spaces visible to the naked eye. From very close distance the background tiles seem to be of dark Blue color under sunlight but look completely Black under artificial light. The size and delicacy of the work is truly remarkable. The mosaic measures 20 mm x 13 mm x 2.14 mm /including gold wall /deep.

US 9.75 / 19.62 mm. Sizing is possible but hot type resizing is not recommended, it's best to size using special laser equipment. Mosaic is intact and complete with no missing pieces. The design of two Doves has been iconic since ancient times.

A particular favorite in art and iconography, the Dove often represents some aspect of the divine, and its use has been shared, adapted and reinterpreted across cultures and millennia to suit changing belief systems. From the ancient world to modern times, this simple bird developed layer upon layer of meaning and interpretive significance, making it a complex and powerful addition to religious texts and visual representations..
