A Ravenna micro mosaic pin is surrounded by faceted carnelian and sapphires in a sterling silver ring. The mix of gold and silver, the colors, and the textures are a symphony of loveliness on you.
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.
