Although I for myself prefer micro mosaic jewelry (see my latest fine example of the Godess of Bacchus), Pietra Dura which is this brooch 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. This is quite a large brooch white flower brooch set 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?
