By Sicis, a micro-mosaic with emeralds turns into a jewel-fern ♦ ︎
Sicis’s micro mosaic is made in Ravenna, a city that houses some of the most famous Romanesque mosaics in the world. It’s not a casuality. Virtuosism in the realization of these micro mosaics manifests itself from time to time in the creation of fancy jewelery, where the merit is not only in the materials used, but also in the difficult to applying the technique to the high jewelery. After a series of animal-inspired jewels, now is a plant, the oldest in the world: the fern, which dates back some 350 million years ago. It is made up of hundreds of hand-laid worked micro-tiles, which form the leaves: a special spinning and cutting technique makes it possible to obtain shades of several colors a single splinter. On these soft shapes are cut emeralds drops-cut.
The ring consists of three leafs in micro mosaic encased in white gold with brilliant cut diamonds paved and a columbian emerald drop. Each earring is made up of six different sized micro mosaic leaves, white gold, diamond pavers and emerald brilliant cut, plus two emerald droplets. Cosimo Muzzano
