An exceptional 18K yellow gold Italian miniature portrait pendant brooch portraying the Italian Renaissance beauty Simonette Vaspucci, better known as La Bella Constatine. The painting is superbly breath taking with bold bright colors and well defined details which are enhanced by 2 real rubies tucked into her hair. A real diamond and natural emerald adorn her necklace. The frame is as incredible as the painting featuring open cutwork, hand engraving, and 8 natural rubies. In excellent condition, it can be worn as a pin or a necklace. Measures 1 3/5" x 1 3/8". Weight 8.3 grams. This is one of the finest hand painted miniature portrait brooches we have seen, you will not be disappointed!
