Among Leonardo da Vinci's many inventions and innovations, “chiaroscuro” may be the most dramatic. Chiarascuro is a painting technique that contrasts light and dark shades to increase the artistic impact of the colors, creating powerful new depths of meaning and beauty. We decided to bring this technique to the world of jewelry.
The Chiarascuro Necklace uses two different shades of the same magnificent and storied gemstone, amethyst, to deliver delectable levels of drama and a wearable work of art. Thirteen deep purple amethyst rounds set the tone and set the stage, allowing the glorious color of the main attractions, the nine bright amethysts, to really pop. The other striking contrast here is our price.
