TO SEE THIS VIDEO ON YouTube.This is an absolutely stunning, antique cameo and 14K yellow gold brooch measuring 1 3/16 inches (30.6 MM) long by 15/16 inch (24.7 MM) wide with a swivel bail enabling it to also be worn as a pendant. As early as 1805, craftsmen began using shell for cameos because it was easily carved due to its many layers, as compared to onyx or agate. Designs throughout history include many subjects. But, the most common of all is that of a noble Romanesque maiden with classic features, Roman dress, jewelry and intricately, often floral embellished hair.
This cameo is unique in that not only is it pink in color, but it has been carved in high relief with much attention paid to detail, evident in her embellished hair. The cameo is bezel set in the frame, which is decorated with engraved flowers and swirls and has a secure pin back. It is marked, tested and guaranteed 14K and has been professionally cleaned and brightly polished. The brooch weighs 5.9 grams.
