A uniquely gorgeous piece that doesn't come around often. Occasionally I have people ask me if this is my best price for a given item. I prefer to list at my lowest possible price so my buyers are getting the best value.

I prefer not to artificially inflate prices only to dicker down. I don't feel that serves anyone. Yes, this is my best price. A brief history of micro mosaic jewelry. Wearing micro mosaic jewelry became popular during the Grand Tour period (17th - 19th Century).
