Description

Connoisseurs of the sensual, pleasingly tactile creations from Italian jewelry house, De Ambrosi, will love this Signed Mother-of-Pearl Diamond Halo Pendant Necklace, made in Italy in the 21st century, 2019. The subject matter and artistry are simple yet sublime. Crafted in 18K white gold, the pendant necklace features a 22-inch chain suspending a cloudlike shape, hand-carved in mother-of-pearl and surrounded with a halo of pavé diamonds with an estimated weight of 0.51 carats total. The custom halo delicately traces the outline, yet also gives the illusion of squeezing the shape with a pressure so gentle yet constant that the lustrous scalloped form seems to burst forth from its sparkling white gold confines.

Mother-of-pearl, also known as nacre, is a resilient and iridescent organic-inorganic composite material produced by some mollusks as an inner shell layer. It is also the material of which pearls are composed. Unlike pearls, mother-of-pearl has a flat surface. Moreover, it can be carved and shaped into unique designs. De Ambrosi is able to push the feminine qualities of the lustrous surface to make it look three dimensional and voluptuous. Renowned for its superior craftsmanship; particularly in lapidary, De Ambrosi was established in 1949 by Remo Deambrosi in Valenza, Piedmont, Italy, and became known for creating splendid hand-carved cabochon shapes. Often mixed with sparkling jewels, the interplay of sparkle and luster is quietly magnificent.

We wonder, is this cloudlike shape a scallop shell or a heavenly fusion of both? The point at the top of the shape gives us pause. Is it an angel wing? And then we realize as enthusiasts of the De Ambrosi oeuvre, that it does not matter as much what it signifies, because we are here for the abstraction and the beautiful formal qualities. We study the compositional details and are delighted. For example, the delicate sparkling chain is the same width as the delicate halo of sparkling diamonds, continuing the line from the pendant up and all around the neck so effortlessly. The necklace hangs boldly but delicately, filling the space below the collar bone gracefully. The original retail price for this piece was $4,700.

Chain measures approx. 22” in length. Pendant measures approx. 1.4" by 1.1" Total diamond weight approx. 0.51 carats. Overall weight approx. 6.57 grams, made in 18k white gold. Signed Ambrosi; circa 2019.
