Description

Intarsia is a classic European art dating back to the 15th century. Initially it was called "Piatra Dura". It was used to make ornamental stone tiles for churches and palaces.

Intarsia's mosaic patterns of inlaid gemstones have been influenced by the intricate metal inlays and gemstone overlays predominantly found in middle Asian jewellery.

Today, one can get a lasting impression of colour and patterned inlays at the "Hermitage Museum" in Leningrad where vast rooms, inlayed with beautiful Malachite and Lapis Lazuli, can be admired. These patterned inlays form the basis for this art form.

This beautiful art form was introduced to the West through the depletion of raw materials in Asia and new stocks found in the American South West. By assimilating motifs and colours taken from the American South West landscape and mixing it with the traditional geometric patterns, beautiful pendants are created. They are set in gold filled, a classic style for today's woman.

The gemstones used can include:
Malachite - green
Picture Jasper - beige
Rhodocrosite - pink
Azurite - ocean blue
Carnelian - orange
Mother of Pearl - lustrous white
White Jasper - white
Black Onyx - black
Lapis Lazuli - royal blue
Black Opal - opalescence


They have been part of our stock and are in good condition.

I love it...it's just like the one I had in the 70's. ..I have been trying to find it for years. It was sent in a beautiful red velvet case . It has a wire wound around it so it won't come apart. Thx so much my search is over. I had just bought a similar ring but it only had 12 bands. I just lucked out by typing in 24 bands and you guys came up. Thx it's a great ring . It got here a day before they quoted.

This ring is beautiful! I have looked everywhere for a replacement for one like this that I used to own, and this one makes me so happy! It’s a very good quality ring at an affordable price, it’s true to size, and it shipped very quickly. I couldn’t be happier.
