Medici Pearl & Jade Necklace

Opulent mix of faceted jade and freshwater pearls recalling the jewelled girdle worn by Lucrezia di Cosimo de’ Medici in a portrait by Agnolo Bronzino (1503–72). A Florentine painter, Bronzino was the court painter of Cosimo I de' Medici, Grand Duke of Tuscany. He was mainly a portraitist but also painted many religious subjects, and a few allegorical subjects, which include what is probably his best known work, 'Venus, Cupid, Folly, and Time', c. 1544–45. Many portraits of the Medicis exist in several versions with varying degrees of participation by Bronzino himself, as Cosimo was a pioneer of the copied portrait sent as a diplomatic gift.

Jade, freshwater pearls & gold-plated beads.
18" long with 2" extender. Lobster clasp.
Clean with a soft cloth.
