Oxidized sterling silver, 22K and 18K yellow gold, Roman coin depicting Constantius Chlorus AD ca. 300, 3 diamonds rose cut 3.80 ctw, seed pearls
A piece of fine remembrance to Constantius Chlorus, the father of the Constantinian Dynasty, Peter Schmid of Atelier Zobel evokes our curiosity and intrigue with exquisite use of material to compose this composition. Within the core of the piece is a Roman coin seared with the profile of the emperor. The dark coin is encased with the lustrous sheen of high karat gold. The golden frame expands, emboldening the center of the work. Beyond lives a sea of seed pearls. The long, delicate strands are ever so delicately positioned to fill the remaining area of the piece. Betwixt it's intricate throw are brown color diamonds, piercing the pearl laden landscape with their sparkling lure. A fine example of scale and proportion, one of the diamonds is cleverly situated just outside the circumference of the head of the brooch. The slight skew in design leaves the eye lingering on its lovely form. With minimal effort, the brooch is fitted by the seamless collection of a pin catch, adhered to its backside. In addition to this, Schmid has masterfully included two silver bails, so the piece may be worn as a pendant. Upon the body the piece is a comfort to behold. Around the neck, a statement to utterly adore. Once again, Schmid stuns us with his artistic ingenuity.
