The only jewels inspired by mosaics.

The Osso pendant was born from the study of a particular element present in a type of mosaic called Asaroton.

The Asaroton (or unswept floor) is a floor mosaic where abundant food remains are represented.

These mosaics were commissioned in the Domus of the wealthiest as a symbol of wealth.

The message that the mosaic wanted to convey was to show the opulence of food that the owner of the house could not only afford to eat but even waste.

We can compare this mosaic to a Birkin, a true status symbol.

The bone is a detail present in the Asaroton preserved in Aquileia at the Archaeological Museum.

The base of the pendant is in 800 silver and is made by a goldsmith's shop specializing in historical jewels. Every slight irregularity in polishing or shape is desired and is the result of manual processing.

Pendant measurements:

The chain is made of 925 silver and measures 45 centimetres.
