                          Italian "Rigato" Liquid Golden Thread Design w/ White Sapphires set Sterling Accent Star Design Sun Necklace


     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.


   This Italian "Rigato" designed pendant necklace hangs off a golden 14k [ gold over sterling silver ] chain and pendant. This Italian "Rigato" designed 

 14k golden pendant is 1 inch by 2 inches and holds 1-carat white sapphires. The necklace features the "Rigato" design of gold liquid thread design, with a 2-carat white sapphire center stone. The edges of this 14k gold pendant have a delicate cut out design that completes this stunning sun pendant Italian design.
