Distinctive millefiori, also known as mosaic glass and Murano glass, dates back to Ancient Roman times. The millefiori technique involves the production of glass rods (known as murrine) with multicolored patterns that are only viewable from the cut ends. These curved millefiore glass tubes in eye-catching cobalt, red, orange, yellow, turquoise and white, are complemented by lapis lazuli roundels and small silver plated beads that complete the design.
Lapis is known as the purity stone, helpful for promoting truth and banishing negative emotions. It the traditional birthstone for Libra and planetary stone for both Capricorn and Aquarius.
The necklace closes at 17" with a silver-toned pewter hook and eye clasp and 1" sterling extension chain.
