A vintage Italian micro-mosaic pendant strung on a chain of London blue topaz and multi-color garnets: the Bohemian-inspired Farnese.

Farnese is a lovely candy-colored, brilliant treat to behold. The pendant is a vintage Italian micro mosaic pendant, most likely made in Rome. It is stamped on the reverse Made in Italy RM. From my research of Italian hallmarks and makers marks, they stamp for the city; "RM" for "Roma." This piece is in good vintage well-worn, well-loved condition with lots of perfectly imperfect charm. The piece is now a shiny brass with hints of the silver plate still left. The bail has been replaced to that of one made of copper and all the glass tesserae remain as well as the cement. A lovely piece with a floral motif and scrolling filigree along the sides.
I've created a hand-linked chain for the pendant of multi-color garnets ranging from golden-green color changing ones, to violet-plum, grossular green to shaded hessonite. Dots of moss aquamarine punctuate throughout. Three pieces of London blue topaz add depth; two faceted near-rounds and one polished droplet. The chain is made of a mixture of 14k rose rolled-gold and blackened sterling silver. Farnese closes with a vintage gilt (sterling with a gold wash) box clasp with a raised floral motif. Just over seventeen inched in length.
