Description

 
1/1 unique masterpiece tribute to jean-daniel ihly’s painting “Genève, la Rade” 18ct solid white gold
 
The exceptional “miniature” technique, reserved for the most skilled enamellers, is a subtle blend between miniature painting and enamelling. Applied by individual spots, each particle will find its place in a tribute to the painting of Jean-Daniel Ihly “Genève, La Rade” from 1890, coming together in exquisite harmony, which is given a timeless unalterable quality by firing.
