This famous bell tower and dome rise high above central Florence. Although usually just called the Duomo, its formal name is Santa Maria del Fiore. I used elements from her highly ornamented faced in this unique design.—Christopher


The Inspiration

The rose window above the entrance to Florence's Duomo is full of color and intricate details. I chose the basic shape as the starting point for a more contemporary halo design.

The Details

Fiore's halo features delicate milgrain detailing and thirteen fine diamonds arrayed around round, brilliant-cut center.



The bridge-style shank has a twisted shape inspired by similarly shaped columns and window mullion elements found on the Santa Maria del Fiore's intricate facade.
