1970 GIAMPAOLO BABETTO 18k GOLD NECKLACE

This 48″ long endless chain is from his solo exhibition at Artwear in 1979. A MASTER goldsmith from the Padua schools of art, he became a new age Michaelangelo figure, deep, brooding, sweet and holding a deep reserve of power inside him, iconic of the general level of Italian art jewelry. This is one of the most extravagant construction in 18k gold I have ever seen. The links are connected through riveting, tiny ancient golden bubbles of the Renaissance tradition, a most gorgeous piece for that long legged lady, the tall one with the neck that can carry statement jewelry.

It can easily be worn doubled around the neck or just Opera length, dramatically long,.
