Timeless elegance for casual or dressier occasions, this long, graduated Pink Blossom Cloisonné Necklace is beaded with double-knotted orbs of cloisonné, whose traditional inlaid enamelwork is a beautiful example of an ancient art.
An art form originating in the Middle East and elevated in China (after its arrival there in the 13th and 14th centuries), the cloisonné technique adorns copper or bronze objects with copper wire designs. The resulting cells are then filled with enamel, fired in a kiln and polished, creating a harmonious contrast between the gleaming metal and the jewel-hued enamel. The exquisite beads of this Pink Blossom Cloisonné Necklace are reminiscent of floral depictions found on cloisonné vases in our National Museum of Natural History's Asian ethnological collection.
24"l. Screw-on clasp.
