Sicis, the Big Bang in a necklace

Sicis has accustomed us to unique pieces. Unique and amazing. This time it is the case of Cosmic Egg. That is not going to end up in a pan, but means “the cosmic forces of nature and regeneration by means of them.” The jewel is designed and manufactured by the Atelier Sicis: the company of Ravenna, it should be remembered, is specialized in mosaics and micromosaics. A processing technique for this very complicated and rather rare. But this series, in addition to being complicated to implement, it is also valuable: it is composed of over 900 diamonds (totaling 9.25 carats) and 1200 sapphires (for 23,22 carats), seven Tanzanite cabochon of 43.77 carats. The tanzanite, a recently discovered stone considered to get good luck, is extremely rare and sought after for its color, an intense blue that changes when viewed from different angles. The necklace is composed of oval elements surrounded by two irregular ellipses with diamonds and sapphires, which refer to the orbits of the planets. A cosmos, in fact. Sicis also took the opportunity to add an astronomical note: according to cosmologists, over 14 billion years ago the entire mass of the universe was compressed into a volume of about 30 times the size of our sun. A small ball when compared with the entire universe. And this “ball” primordial exploded with the Big Bang and the current universe was born. Which it is now also represented by this necklace.
