A stylized comet’s tail swirling around a diamond set half ball adorned with fine gold granulation in the so-called Etruscan style: the highly polished ‘comet tail’ in rose gold on its outer parts, the inner parts reflecting the granulation in yellow gold.
It is a subtle play of light and shade, of satinised surfaces reflected by the highly polished parts, highlighted in the centre by a brilliant cut diamond of approx. 0.1 carat each.
A brilliant combination of high quality traditional craftsmanship displayed by the precise granulation work and a modern dynamic use of forms reflecting modern times.

Kindly note that the ears of our ‘model’ are about 1 cm ( ½”) in length and width smaller than a human ear.
