Very delicate bracelet in micromosaic on a vitrified support in aventurine glass made of twelve elements linked together by a gold chain, made by the master goldsmith François Dafrique.
The 12 medallions represent mainly lake landscapes bordered by ruins.These views and monuments are reconstituted by means of "tessera" of a very rare finesse.
For the main part we note:
-The waterfall of Marmore
-The pyramid of Cestia
-The ruins in Via Appia
-The bridge of Lucano
-The tomb of Cecilia Metella
A chip on the back support of the central medallion almost invisible.
