      Italian "Rigato" Liquid Sterling Thread Design w/ White Sapphires Set Golden Accent Star Design  with an Ocean Blue 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.


   This Italian "Rigato" designed necklace is 1 inch in diameter featuring the famous " Rigato" sterling liquid thread design. This design is completed with white sapphires set in a delicate gold star design, that highlights a 2 -carat ocean blue sapphire center stone.   The pendant hangs from an 18" sterling silver chain.
