Although I for myself prefer micro mosaic jewelry (see my latest fine example of the Godess of Bacchus), Pietra Dura this brooch is made of is also an example of high skilled crafsmanship and a lot of patience of the maker. It's like micro mosaic, a work of precision. It is quite a large white flower brooch pin mounted in vermeil (gold plate over silver) in a black Onyx background. Measurement: 5,5 x 4.5 cm (2.2 x 1.8").
I could imagine that it belongs also to mourning jewelry because of the rather sober muted colors don't you think so?
