Victorian Pin Carved Shell Cameo & Garnets Fine Antique Jewelry

Such a fabulous piece, this Victorian pin with cameo. This is a fantastic design, with upper pin a gently angled bar pin shape with center flower with garnet and two other garnet accents; from which is suspended the triangular pendant with another garnet at the bottom; and a second tiny pendant or charm at the bottom with yet more garnets; three of them. All this alone is wonderful enough, but to top it off, the large pendant has a beautiful center cameo of fine carved shell in a classic Victorian design, and even rarer she is facing left ! We think all this is fine gold filled, but it has not been tested, and parts could be karat gold. It has a beautiful patina as well with a slight rose touch. This tiered piece measures 2 & 1/2" tall and2 & 1/8" across at the top and is in good condition with mild age wear. The cameo back is open and hollow; and a small photo could be laid inside; and actually a cut glass piece could be glue mounted on its back if one desired for a jeweler to do so. Truly lovely Victorian jewelry at its best.
