Percossi Papi has created his jewels in a small atelier near the Pantheon, in the heart of ancient Rome, since 1968. Specializing in enameling and fantasy subject matter, his pieces have been included in many high fashion magazine and in costume films.
This wonderfully imaginative brooch depicts three enameled dragons, swirling around a long, cool slice of watermelon tourmaline. The dragons' bodies are decorated with murky green and ocher enamel, with tiny seed pearls encrusted in their scaly tails. Scattered across the span of the brooch are precious jewels, en route to the dragon lair. A wonderful fantasy piece crafted from a master jeweler, and ready to become one of your treasures!
