A NARDI moretto set with turquoise and coloured diamonds

This is another moretto by Nardi that will also be auctioned by Phillips de Pury in NY. In this instance Nardi is using his well known carved ebonite head as a base to display a set of cabochon turquoise, coloured diamonds and pearls in an elaborate design. An unusual combination that the master jeweller manages to turn into a creation that could rival any haute couture design.
