Napoleonic Bee Venetian Glass Intaglio Pendant Aqua Chalcedony Emerald Pearl Necklace - Peu d’Abelle IV Necklace
A dainty and gorgeous emerald green Venetian glass intaglio of a Napoleonic bee, backed in mother of pearl and surrounded with sparkling white topaz gemstones - becomes the focal point of this classic necklace. This gorgeous work of art has been married to a delicate necklace of hand-linked aqua blue chalcedony beads and accented with freshwater pearl stations flanked by little emerald ovals. The mixed metals of this necklace allow the wearer to use it as a layering element with both sterling silver and gold. The Napoleonic bee intaglio pendant, as the centerpiece of the collection of amulets, echoes the artwork of antique plaster intaglios that might have been brought back as Grand Tour souvenir during the Victorian Era. The charming little gold vermeil Fleur de Lis charm and Napoleonic bee echoes a French provenance and will invoke passerby's to utter the term, “Ooh La La”.
