Micro Mosaic PAX Cross PendantThis 19th Century Italian Micro mosaic cross has been set into a unique Diamond 2.05 tcw and 14k Yellow Gold 5.25g. The bale has a 4mm opening. The original mosaic was handmade by a master craftsman. The word "PAX" and a dove is displayed on the center of the cross. The mosaic pieces are a deep maroon red and a beautiful robins egg blue color. Micro mosaics are made by artisans that use tiny pieces of glass (Tesserae) or enamel like pieces to construct a small figurative image. This technique was introduced by Romans. It's a way to tell a visual story. This cross pendant is a one of a kind, truly a unique piece.
