This rare bracelet was made c1840-50, and is set in the finest eighteen-carat yellow gold. It consists of seven interlinked individual panels.
This would have been a typical Grand-Tour souvenir, for the aristocrats visiting Italy, Greece, as they did in the nineteenth century.
The panels depicts different scenes in Rome, on a background of lapis lazuli, and each is made from multiple tiny pieces of marble: there is no paint applied. This is why it is called “micro-mosaic.”

A very difficult puzzle to put together, and an amazing feat to have survived to this day in such beautiful pristine condition!
