Cleopatra VII--The Necklace
Cleopatra VII is a one of a kind, handmade, 22k gold granulated* eye with a cornflower blue rose cut Spinel. The 22k gold chain is also made by hand (one link at a time). Fit for a Goddess. Ready to rule an empire.
*Granulation is an ancient decorative element that was first practiced about 5,000 years ago by the Sumerians. It is one of the most complex jewelry techniques as one second too long with the torch, and you end up with a pool of molten gold!
The granulation is formed by heating a tiny piece of 22k gold until it forms into a sphere shape.
Entire necklace approximately 19"
Length of eye: .5"
