I still covet this piece but it’s way outta my league. Just love these convertible pieces.


I saw another one this morning that is ingenious and I’ve never seen anything like it before.

Glad to hear that you're a fan. I wasn't even aware of his jewelry until I saw this bracelet, the Art Nouveau and modern combo got my attention.

I also think this is terribly charming but totally out of the question for my size 8 finger!

This would be my absolute dream ring! Yellow is my favourite colour and I adore old cuts. I’d definitely be your alibi if I could wear it one day a month :)

I know nothing about cameo, the craftsmanship just looks gorgeous and graceful to me.

OMG 13.79 cts of antique amaziness. I feel lucky that I got to try it on!

Your "Marylin Monroe" looks better, she's divine!:kiss2::kiss2::kiss2:

Thanks for your kind words @purplesilk ! MM's cut is better, but the sheer size of the 13.79 is bonkers-she was very pretty irl-there were just a lot of fingerprints on her (not all mine):geek2:

Two-sided pendant by Louis Wièse, with the reverse side believed to depict Mary Stuart (not shown here though).
wiese-pendant-renaissance-taste-with-cameo-reverse-Jpeg-scaled-e1659694605706.jpg

The chased gold portrait of a Classical maiden on the reverse, wearing a luxurious fringe necklace and tainia, is derived from an engraved gem formerly in the collection of Prince Stanislas Poniatowski, which bears the erroneous signature of Dioskourides. The subject of the gem is uncertain; some identify her as the goddess Venus, some as Isis and some as Zeus’s lover Io. During the nineteenth century, the intaglio was considered a great treasure from the ancient world and was believed to have been discovered in 1756 on the estate of the Duke of Bracciano. Wièse is most likely to have known it as a plaster impression.
