This real shell cameo necklace is exquisitely carved to represent Diana; Goddess of the Hunt. It is set in a 10k multi colored Black Hills gold, in an open back setting.
Measurements of the large pendant: 2-5/8 inches X 1-5/8 inches. Beautifully crafted and the condition is magnificent.
The domed shell was carved by a master. Working through the layers of shell, the artist magically revealed the details of a beautiful face in crisp detail. This is a large, long oval cameo.
It is set in a fabulous 10 kt gold frame that is embellished with traditional Black Hills Gold leaves and grapes in tri color.
This is a lovely rendition of DIANA GODDESS OF THE HUNT. The Goddess's signature crescent moon is nestled in her curls. A detailed necklace lays in sublime elegance on her luminescent neck.
The flowing ripples of her gown lay gracefully around her bodice and shoulders. This regal profile is beautiful.
It is marked 10K on the back, bottom point.
The chain is 16 & 1/8 inches long, and is gold filled. I do not believe it is original to the pendant as it seems a little short for this large cameo.
No damage to report. Please, look at all the pictures. You can see some glare in one view that is of course not in another and not a flaw in the carving or shell.
This is a beautifully carved, elegantly set, antique cameo in amazing condition.
