Eugene Funteng

Yes, I'm completely obsessed with jewelry and as I was browsing the Internet for pictures of vintage pieces I came across this stunning necklace from master french goldsmith Euguene Funteng.  Famous for his work in the second half of the nineteenth century he admired ancient techniques and was influenced by jewelry from the greeks, romans and etruscans thus creating an "archeological style".  I'm also obsessed with jewelry from these eras so of course I was drawn to his necklace, it's similar to some pieces I've sold lately.  Cleopatra is definitely going to be a look for Summer 2010 and if you have an extra 26,000 euros this one can be purchase click here.
