- Italian Grand Tour Micro Mosaic Turquoise Maltese Cross Pendant
Italian Grand Tour Micro Mosaic Turquoise Maltese Cross PendantThe Grand Tour period in Europe was from 1680-1880. This is the time when students from all over the world began the travel to further enrich their classical studies. Most would start their journey in France and make their way to their final destination in Italy. Micro mosaics are small pictorial images consisting of hundreds of little tiles. Students during that period purchased their mosaic to capture memories that they wanted to bring back home. This original Italian Micro Mosaic Maltese Cross is a beautiful turquoise color. The Holy Spirit is depicted in the center symbolizing purity and peace. The symbols all link to the Mariners Cross at the bottom of the cross. This beautiful mosaic is set in a Cynthia Ann 14k yellow gold 4.4g, champagne diamond 1.25 tcw, and rhodium sterling bezel.
