Gem Set Love

 This fabulous brooch is reverse carved on crystal and the crystal is set on an onyx which gives it amazing depth and really makes the carving pop. The scene is a Nude Woman with drapery at her feet, an urn, and an Aladdin lamp on a pedestal which she seems to be focusing all of her attention on. The ornate pierced foliate frame is crafted of 18k yellow gold. The entire piece is a lovely work of art.
