Antique, Italian Grand Tour Bird of Paradise Micro Mosaic Ring, 18ct Yellow Gold

    Description

    The term micromosaic is used to describe mosaic made of tiny glass pieces, some so fine they will use as many as five thousand pieces of glass per square inch. The interest in classical archaeology and discoveries of ancient sites in the late 18th and early 19th century triggered a fashion in jewelry. Although many images depict classical mythology and scenery, others represented romantic and symbolic themes.

        How does resizing work?

        Most of our rings can be resized unless stated otherwise in the item description. Simply add your required size in the notes section at checkout, and our team will take care of the rest!

        You can purchase the ring and then return if for resizing if needed - if you buy an engagement ring, for instance, but it is not quite the right size for your partner. There is no additional charge for this but the buyer is responsible for the return postage and insurance.
