The burgeoning silver trade between Europe and North America triggered a neoclassical revival in a micro mosaic jewelry art that dates back to antiquity. Based on the ancient Byzantine techniques, it was first revived during the 16th century in Italy, in the Medici-ruled Florence. While earlier mosaics were comprised of square tesserae of marble and glass, later works perfected the painstaking technique by employing small pieces, slices or strips of semi-precious stones. This method, called smalti filati, was further developed in Vatican workshops and brought to such perfection that the tiny pieces of genuine colored stone tesserae looked more like a painting.
