Antique Greek Goddesses Day & Night Shell Cameo Pin/Pendant 9K Yellow Gold. Intricately carved cameo of the Greek goddesses of Day and Night is framed in a simple yellow gold frame. Cameos this large and with the goddesses of Day and Night are seldom seen which is one of the reasons I have priced it as I have.
It would cost this much for me to replace it, I think. The sardonyx shell cameo measures 53mm x 42mm while the cameo and frame measures 60mm x 49mm. The image of the cameo in my palm shows the scale of the piece which is quite large. The brooch closure is in fine working condition. It can also be worn as a pendant by using the bail.
The gold frame has no hallmark but it tests as 9k or higher. The cameo is in very good antique condition. Would be in excellent antique condition except for crazing or hairline cracks at the top of the cameo which is not ususal for a cameo of this age.
They are difficult to see except with light behind the cameo. I just want buyers to be aware of them.I know it doesn't make sense, but I price the majority of my pieces by how much they are worth to me. I decided this cameo is worth more to me than I originally thought since I missed it so much, therefore I raised the price. The condition of this cameo indicates it was a cherished and well-cared for piece of jewelry.

Jewelry and formal wear are two of my many passions. As with all my passions, I tend to overdo! As I was looking through my vast jewelry collection, I realized I had enough jewelry to open my own jewelry store. In the process of collecting all the jewelry, I have learned quite a bit. Sharing what I have learned with interested buyers is something that makes me smile.
Thanks for letting me have my fun! Over the years, I have been collecting all types of jewelry. My taste in jewelry varies widely. Vintage jewelry to modern designs are equally appealing.
The expense associated with the jewelry varies just as widely. In any given day, I may be wearing fashion jewelry along side high-end fine jewelry. Alas, I have collected too much, yet, I still want more. Five years ago, I had gastric bypass surgery.
Since then, I have lost 110 pounds! Every pound is still gone! However, one bad outcome has resulted from the surgery.
Did I say a little? Four closets of clothes is a'little' overboard, don't you think? It is time to let go of some of them, primarily, the'dress-up' clothes. Please feel free to contact me with any questions you may have about the items I have for sale.
