The size of the crown is brilliant symbolizing the villages hosting vineyards and wine growers along the Luxemburgish Moselle, all set in 18-carat yellow gold.
The outlines of the Grand Duchy hand-cut on a solid 925 sterling silver plate have once again been carefully silvered and rhodium-plated to guarantee its finest brilliance. The Moselle region of Luxembourg is made of a massive 18-carat yellow gold plate, in which are set diamonds and blue sapphire.
Some pieces of yellow gold have been sanded, others are polished mirror. The same was done with the leaves of vines made of solid silver. They were sanded and again silvered in order to receive as a result this bright color opposing the sparkling brilliance of the bunches of grapes in polished solid silver.
Both sides of the lizards are also handmade in solid silver and again silvered. We meet these small animals frequently in the walls of the old picturesque vineyards, reason why they were reserved a little corner on our masterpiece.
