It showcases some of the most important blue pigments in the medieval painter's palette such as ultramarine and azurite. This necklace includes agates which are primarily formed within volcanic rocks and metamorphic rocks. These stone have been seen to have dated back as far as Ancient Greece.
Farheen Ali, a Toronto-based jewelry artist designed and created this collection to capture the essence of these richly illuminated manuscripts. Each piece features these traditional minerals complemented with a modern setting of agates, metals and recycled materials.
