$175.00

When the city of Pompeii was excavated, it became another stop in the grand tour of Europe. Local jewelers found that the tourists eagerly would purchase these carved "lava" pieces. (This type of stone was not lava rather a type of limestone that was found near Pompeii.) Wearing them showed one was a well rounded traveler. I rather believe that any of those tourists also just loved the work! This is an antique pre owned item, sold as is, in great wearable condition considering its age. It appears some repairs were done, the darker metal may be be a lead repair.
