This is the original model commissioned in 1938 by Queen Nazli, mother of King Farouk of Egypt. Pave diamonds, baguettes, roses on necklace are also dress clips.

Handcrafted for me by John Catalano.  This is very 3-dimensional and I could not capture its true beauty.  Roses are 8" side-to side, 3" wide and 2" tall.  All hand-drilled and set rhinestones with a wonderful hinging in the center so it hangs beautifully and confortably.

These are some early attempts at creating the rose using lost wax molds.  Didn't work so John hand-made each metal petal and bent them to shape.
