Micro mosaic earrings with carnelian and blue sapphire (Ravenna)

Micro mosaic elements dangle from hoops of faceted carnelian, 14k gold chain, blue sapphire, and dancing crystal quartz.

 

This past summer of 2018, I had the opportunity to visit the "Mosaic City" of Europe: Ravenna, Italy. While there, we visited the circuit of magnificent art mostly from the 6th century, when Ravenna was an outpost of the Byzantine Empire... pieces commissioned by my personal hero, Empress Theodora. It was in the shop of the Basilica of San Vitale that I was able to source some AMAZING micro mosaic elements, pieces that have been created by Italian artisans for centuries. Our Wanderlust Ravenna Collection is a twist on an ancient tradition. Wear them with joy, my darling Sophanista.
