    I hope you agree with me it is a very detailed and fine work of micro mosaic with the Chi-Rho sign. According to one tradition, they are the Greek equivalents of the initial letters of the Latin Christ Rex (Christ (is) King).
    Not so good to see on the photo, but the dove and the top bunch of grapes (like the other image symbols) have silver and the dove gold accents (in the wings). What is also special about this is the very beautiful detailed chain of Sterling silver. Also with this beautiful piece I am, as you understand, very happy!

      Very beautiful and yes, it is Greek letters for the first two letters in the name of Christ.

      That's a really lovely piece of mosaic art, read somewhere that little mosaic pieces like that were popular souvenirs from the 'grand tour' that happened a lot in Europe at the time. Yours is very detailed! :)
