SOLD Victorian Micro Mosaic Bird Pendant in 10kt Gold Mount
A stunning pendant with a beautiful micro mosaic scene set into onyx. The mosaic is in excellent condition and has wonderful vibrant colours depicting flowers and a bird. The picture has an almost 3D like quality and it has been masterfully created. To finish the piece and add a little extra, the bird has a tiny amethyst eye that glistens prettily when the light catches it. The onyx gem has been firmly set into a 10kt gold frame and this has been fully backed by a large piece of 10kt gold. This has been done at a later date and adds to the pendants beautiful quality making a reassuringly heavy pendant.
