This refined and unique amber necklace is abundant in many exquisite details. The intaglio amber pendant is the focal point of this piece. A beautiful profile of a lady with a dove has been hand carved at the back. This creates a wonderful 3-D effect.
A sterling silver necklace has been adorned with cognac and lemon amber beads. The beads have a faceted surface, which correlate nicely to the style of the pendant and the nobel character of the whole jewellery piece.
The amber necklace has a double clasp fitted by the pendant.
The sculpture inside the amber pendant has been made by using a reverse intaglio method. This is a manual technique of carving amber at the back of a cabochon. This gives a a multi-dimensional effect to the sculpture inside. The figure carved in the amber is commonly called a cameo.
