    As many of you already know there were around mid 19th century many micro mosaic jewels created with images of historic buildings. These were often purchased by wealthy tourists who could show at home what they had been admired on travel. Of course, this "rage" was used before photography was invented. The image on this pendant is an example of this kind of micro mosaic jewelry and is the Moneta Temple in Rome. This kind of jewels was called: Grand Tour jewelry.
    At the same time, you can see that on the fourth photo my "Grand Tour" Micro Mosaic jewels is completed for the time being !

      You will laugh - it is a tourist piece but I'll post when it arrives. After I bought it I looked at all your MM jewelry again and realized again how amazing your collection is!

      valentine97, I will certainly not laugh. I once started too but this is already long time ago. And don't forget in Europe I think there is to buy more of this kind of jewelry than in the U.S I think at least. And let it be a passion than your collection will grow automatically. I've had my eye again fall on a fantastic piece, but if it works, but neither do I see. I will show it again, of course. Again welcome to the club! And yes you are right I'm completely satisfied with my collection.
      Have a nice day.
