This necklace showcases a verdant outburst of color and exacting detail.
The striking green foil fire opal glass stone centering this necklace was hand-pressed in mid-century Czechoslovakia by a glass artisan at the apex of his trade, still using centuries-old manufacturing processes.
The opal is accompanied by a tiny porcelain button made by Japanese artisans after WWII, showing off lovely hand-painted yellow roses with gold luster.
