Description

a cloisonne turtle dove charm

Show:
Colorful cut gems and brightly glazed enamel, limned and joined with a precious tracery of gold, form the gentle curving shape of the turtle dove charm. From the short sleek feathers lining the dove's head to the longer graceful pinion feathers on its wings, each miniscule feather on the charm appears to be meticulously crafted and individually attached at tiny articulating joints, although why such painstaking attention to realism is needed in a piece of jewelry is not immediately apparent.
