Italian "Rigato" Liquid 14k GoldenThread Design w/ White Sapphires Set Sterling Accent Star Design with a White Sapphire Center Stone
Shiny brilliant-cut white sapphires stand out on a tiny ‘Ornato’ engraving. Their light elegantly spreads over the semi-opaque surface created by Gianmaria Buccellati 40 years ago and known worldwide as the ‘Rigato’ technique. To obtain this ‘ fabric effect ’ a master goldsmith has engraved, stripe by stripe, the whole precious surface. A technique achieved with the utmost accuracy by hand with burins, by following the same goldsmith techniques of Renaissance times.
