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.

For the main part we note:
-The waterfall of Marmore
-The pyramid of Cestia
-The ruins in Via Appia
-The bridge of Lucano

These views and monuments are reconstituted by means of "tesserae" of a very rare finesse.
Chipping on the support of the central medallion almost invisible (upside down).
