Beautiful finely detailed antique Victorian Pietra Dura stone set in sterling silver bezel and strung with vintage black onyx and fine Rhodochrosite beads.    The stone is a black onyx base with cut and fitted polished stones, a kind of micro mosaic, creating a bouquet of roses and buds  with a background of leaves.  This type of fine hard stone inlay work flourished in Florence beginning in the 16th century.  Jewelry items of Pietra Dura became a popular souvenir item for Victorian visitors on Grand Tour similar to the popular micro mosaic jewelry.  The pendant is 1-5/8 inches x 1-1/4 inches.   20 inches in length.
