Italian women have always loved lavish display. Even for the poorest, a rich show of jewellery was all important. Italian goldsmiths were expert at making a little material go a very long way. The garnets in this necklace have been backed with red metallic foil to improve their colour. Red and gold are the dominant colours in Italian traditional jewellery.
