Contemporary, Post 1990
Beautiful Italy's Tagliamonte pendant composed of 5 intaglios arranged in the Cardinal points. The concept of Duality, Gemini and Twins is present throughout the design. Romulus and Reimus comes to mind, the twin brothers fed by the Capitoline Wolf. There is incredible detail to this pendant.
These intaglios are Venetian Glass, highly prized. Tagliamonte glass intaglios are known for their fine detail and high quality and look very much like natural stone.
The East and West intaglios feature the Crowned Lion with his paw on a child's knee and are the color of Rose Quartz.
The larger center oval Intaglio depicts the twins laboring on the right and a Pan like figure playing the flute on the left. It is Amethyst in color.
In the North and South intaglios, you find the twins embraced in a fraternal hug. These are also Rose Quartz color.
Gold flowers are set in each corner where the intaglio frames intercept. Their petals are Florentine gold, the centers are polished.
Overall pendant measurements are 2" tall including the bail by 1 1/2" wide.
Marked 14k and the letter B inside a circle on the inside of the bail. In excellent condition, look unworn.
Gemini is the astrological sign for those born between May 21 and June 21.
Chain sold separately.

We measure bracelets based on their wearable length, not the actual length. We do this because chunky bracelets will have a smaller wearable length than the actual length as the thickness of the bracelet reduces the internal measurement. If at any time you would like the actual length and is not in the description, please feel free to contact us.
