COMMENTS: This hand crafted brooch made of sumptuous 22k gold has beautiful beaded detail. The piece includes a genuine Ceylon sapphire. It was wonderfully crafted and is obviously the work of a highly skilled goldsmith using a granulation technique. This has been a popular way to decorate and texture jewelry items since ancient times. The technique has been known since Etruscan times and was revived in the 19th century.
