This gold ring is composed of two flat hoops with slightly rounded edges that frame a central band within a cocoon of extremely fine gold wires and globules of multicolored enamels. Inside the hoop there is a grid through which bunches of seven fine wires are pulled and held in place with molten globules. The tips of these wires are molten to form small granules and then randomly curled and enameled to create the decoration. On the rim of the hoop are Italian warranty marks and Corvaja’s maker’s mark.
