As you can see I am a great admirer of Piqué juwelry. I wonder why I did'nt see some Piqué juwelry up till now on Show & Tell.
It's forbidden to make this kind of juwelry nowadays (and that's good because the Hawkins bill turtle is one of the protected animals) but in the good old times they were very loved to make juwelry. The shield was moulded and than the handworksmen make (very often by hand) engravements of gold, silver, mother of pearl and so on. Because this it's forbidden since long now it will become more and more rare. I'll hope you will enjoy it like me.
