TO SEE THIS 360 VIDEO ON YouTube.This is a lovely antique cameo and 14K white gold brooch measuring 1 3/4 inches long by 1 7/16 inches wide with a hinged hidden 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 depicts a nicely detailed woman with fancy upswept, floral embellished hair and a floral embellishment on her shoulder. It is bezel set in the ornate oval filigree frame. The piece has a secure pin back with a secure lock and is marked, tested and guaranteed 14K. It has been professionally cleaned and weighs 9.6 grams.
