My greatest passion in my collection of antique jewelry is the earliest Mikro Mosaic jewelry. Here you see a beautiful oval Mikro Mosaic pendant set in Black Onyx /Black Lava Stone set in 14K gold. The second square brooch has been in my possession for a long time. It's the same image but it is very nice to see in the delicacy of the tesserae that the square brooch is still quite a bit older than my newest oval pendant acquisition. And it is a well-known fact that the finer the tesserae, the older the Mikro Mosaic work.
The hallmark of the oval pendant depicted here is a Dutch hallmark that was struck in objects of 14K gold and is used between 1852 and 1906.
The size of the oval pendant is 6 x 5 cm.
