Carving gemstones dates back thousands of years. It is believed that the tradition began with the use of individual seals and signets designed to establish authenticity on legal documents.
Concurrently, the evolution of these images as a talisman or amulet with magical properties developed. From that emerged the wearing of these objects as personal adornments.
Across the surface of an oval cabochon blue flash moonstone is an intaglio featuring a profile of the head of a classical woman.
Detailed with long curls flowing down to the shoulders and a diadem encircling her head, the aquiline nose reflects the classical look in intaglios. Its adularescence is clear and bright, shifting across its surface with neon blues.
Elevated in a bezel of platinum, the carving is surrounded with diamonds. A double halo of forty-eight (48) single cut diamonds of .02 carats each (total of .96 carats with H-L color and VS clarity) lights up the luminous moonstone with multiple rays of brilliance and shine.
