This perennial bouquet is rendered in fine micromosaic work.

The term micromosaic is used to describe mosaic made of tiny glass pieces, some so fine they will use as many as five thousand pieces of glass per square inch.

The interest in classical archaeology and discoveries of ancient sites in the late 18th and early 19th century triggered a fashion in jewelry. Although many images depict classical mythology and scenery, others represented romantic and symbolic themes.
