Pendant in 18 kt yellow and white gold with red coral and brown diamonds.
The jewel was made entirely by hand, the clown obtained through a skilful burin engraving of the coral and the precious metal applied to it was worked through various techniques: from wax modeling and subsequent investment casting, to the tulle fretwork carried out directly on the metal .
The jewel is a unique piece that contains in small spaces a set of high craftsmanship, with only 8.45 grams of gold it is possible to see a juxtaposition of goldsmith techniques of the Florentine Renaissance to a material with warm colors typical of a Mediterranean style.
Refined and elegant 18 kt yellow and white gold brooch with diamonds and shell cameo depicting the god Mars. This jewel made entirely by hand with the fretwork technique, is inspired by a typical Florentine Renaissance goldsmith’s art, where the metal was worked in such a way as to reproduce ornamental designs used on fabrics or lace; the metal was then further refined through the burin engraving, thanks to which matt and glossy chromatic contrasts were obtained, giving life to completely unique decorations. The back, in addition to a meticulous finish that enhances the light of the diamonds (a-jour), shows the monogram of my initials (I.B) on the bottom of the cameo.
It is a pendant which, thanks to the shape of the black opal and the vivacity of its colours, recalls the sea… A single color would not be enough to describe the thousand shades of art, so what more suitable gem if not an opal, what more precious metal if not gold to be able to set it, what eternally luminous stones if not diamonds.
