Leonardo Lapis Collection
It’s true! If you visit the Louvre to catch a glimpse of the world’s most famous painting, you may be disappointed. It’s gone. Hidden from view. Of course nobody stole or destroyed it. But years of protective varnish have obscured its original hues. Researchers used advanced digital photo technology to capture a high-resolution image of the masterpiece. It was discovered that the crisp blue sky behind Mona was painted with lapis lazuli pigment. We can’t paint like Da Vinci. But I’d say with our new Leonardo Lapis Necklace, we’ve created a masterpiece. It’s like wearing a piece of art. Twenty spectacular polished lapis beads are hand strung along the entire 18” length of the piece, each separated by a glimmering gold-finished spacer. A dazzling lapis drop, stunningly set in sterling silver finished with gold, dangles gracefully and seduces the eye with a deep blue reminiscent of the sky after a storm. Lucky for you, no high-tech equipment is required to see the true blue hues of this lapis beauty.
