The unique, totally one of a kind, pendant is made from an ancient bronze button from the Byzantine Empire back in the 5th century. This enamel inlaid piece probably was a button or a knob of a decorative box or furniture. The enamel and glass are inlaid into the object in a technique named "Appliqué". There are nice red, celadon/gray and white enamel inlays still set in place. It's an extremely rare and unusual find. Measures 20 mm (13/16")

………………………………………………………………………………………
Enameling is an old and widely-adopted technology, for most of its history mainly used in jewelry and decorative art.
Enamel was at its most important in European art history in the Middle Ages, beginning with the Late Romans and then the Byzantines who began to use cloisonné enamel in imitation of cloisonné inlays of precious stones.
……………………………………………………………………………………….
I have set the object in a fine silver bezel and given it a rustic matte finish.
I have attached it to 17” (43cm) oxidized 2 kinds of silver chains which compliment the color and special look of the pendant. It has a silver special antique like clasp.
All findings are made from sterling silver and hallmarked 925.

The length of the chain can be changed upon request.

I’m taking my photos under various different lighting conditions and angles in order to give the most accurate representation of my jewelry. If you would like to see other images or have any questions please contact me.

It will be sent to you in a beautiful gift box.

All stains and reflections are due to camera.
