A hand chased bell with an octagonal petal-cut fringe and a vegetal pattern on its surface bears a clear diopside with a deep warm green colour, having a triangular cut. The setting in bland fine silver coated with 935 Sterling silver from outside is resting upon a golden ball of 900/20 orange gold. Above it and just below the bail, two metallic blue drops of 99,98% pure ruthenium embellish the composition from both sides. The bell, chased and patterned in repoussé technique, has a peculiarly deep, as if inhaling, voice, literally half closed up in its sphere, short, but full sound and due to the tiny size of brim diameter, tends to tremolos, but is also playable in single strokes. Bell in 800 silver blanched and hand polished, pendant in a special palladium-silver-copper alloy, hammer in 950 silver, bail in 900 palladium-enriched silver end-forged.
Signed and hallmarked inside the bell.
