Country of origin: Italy

Style: Vintage

Period: ca. 1980

Source of inspiration: Mother Nature

Theme: Ladybug
- Many cultures consider ladybirds lucky and have nursery rhymes or local names for the insects that reflect this. For instance, the Turkish name for the insect is ugur böcegi, literally meaning 'good luck bug'. In many countries, including Russia, Turkey, and Italy, the sight of a coccinellid is either a call to make a wish or a sign that a wish will soon be granted.

Material: 18K white gold (touchstone tested)

Technique: Enamelling
- Enamelling is an old and widely-adopted technology. The ancient Egyptians applied enamels to pottery and stone objects. The ancient Greeks, Celts, Russians, and Chinese also used enameling processes on metal objects. Enamel is the colorful result of fusing powdered glass to a substrate by firing, usually between 750 and 850 degrees Celsius. The powder melts and flows and hardens to a smooth, durable vitreous coating on metal, glass or ceramic. According to some sources, the word enamel comes from the High German word smelzan (to smelt) via the Old French esmail. Used as a noun, "an enamel" is a usually small decorative object, coated with enamel coating, such as a champlevé or a cloisonné (different techniques).

Diamond(s):
21 modern brilliant cut diamonds with an estimated weight of ± 0.60ct. (colour and clarity: E/G, vs/si).
- All diamond weights, color grades and clarity are approximate since stones are not removed from their mounts to preserve the integrity of the setting.
- We have all diamonds screened by the IJGC-lab for whether they are natural or synthetic, and all diamonds in this jewel are 100% guaranteed to be natural!

Birthstones: Diamond is the birthstone (or month stone) for April.

Hallmarks: Italian hallmarks for 18K and the makers mark

Dimensions: 2,32 cm (0,91 inch) x 1,66 cm (0,65 inch) - See picture with a ruler in cm and inches
