c1930 Art Deco 14K White Gold Carved Shell Cameo Pin Pendant

She's a little different, looking not only to the side but looking up with an air of elegance or great optimism.

This art deco carved shell cameo pin or pendant is set in a beautiful solid 14K white gold etched bezel. Most of these are set in a filigree setting...this one is solid gold all around. She's expertly hand-carved with chiseled features, bobbed hairdo, and a beaded necklace that gets some natural color from the shell itself. A flower swirls around her. Hold her up to the light and you can see the fine quality of the carved silhouette.

The pin is impressively sized at 1 5/8 by 2 1/4 inches. The back has a ~C~ clasp with an added safety guard (not gold) to keep it secure. There's also a swivel loop at the top for wearing as a pendant on a chain so you have great versatility in how you wear it.

The cameo (without the guard) weighs 12.8 grams. Marked 14K (also acid tested) and F.P.S. for the maker. The cameo is in excellent condition.
