Lito Blue Enamel Black Diamond Ruby Necklace

Member's Price:
$1,176.00 - $1,323.00

Grecian designer Lito Karakostanoglou takes traditional symbols and creates a modern interpretation. Her Athens atelier is named after a primary source of inspiration - "Cabinet des Curiosities."

Nazars are eye amulets that protect the wearer against the curse of the "evil eye". While the concept of the evil eye and talisamanic protection date back to Classical antiquity, the nazar is a legacy of the Turkish Ottoman empire and can be found in the many countries and cultures that were once under Ottoman rule.

Lito's enamel eyes not only reference talismans, but also the Georgian-era miniature art called "Lover's Eyes". Ivory brooches, rings, and pendants were painted with the close-up detail of a loved one's eye.

Enamel eye set with rubies and black brilliant diamonds in 14k blackened white gold. Handmade in Athens, Greece.
