Unique Vintage Hand carved Cowrie Shell cameo Brooch Pin Pendant
I HAD to acquire this cameo for the shop! You can on occassion find Cowry/Cowrie shell (Cypraea Tigris) cameos, however they are usually in the form of a seascape or scenic piece... very rarely are they found depicting a lovely profile! The colors of chocolate brown and rich lavender and purple will delight the lady that owns this cameo... what's more?! It's in a ROUND shape, which is highly collectable and coveted among my fellow collectors :) This cameo is set into a 1/20th 12K GF frame and in Immaculate and EXCELLENT condtion... This cameo is truly eye-candy for the collector that wants something a bit different for their collection... cowry are found on the ocean floor at depths from 30-135 feet. Located in the Indian and western Pacific Oceans, with a range that spans across the waters of Micronesia and Polynesia, the Coral Sea, Philippines, the Australian Coast, to the east coast of Africa including Madagascar. Their beautiful color range makes them truly one of a kind when it comes to cameo carvings! This cameo measures 1 3/8" all around and is so striking with the warm colors against a stark white background... just so appealing! Will compliment almost any color or fabric with which it is worn. This piece is versatile and can adorn as a pendant or brooch :) A wonderful Gem for the cameo collector that thought they had seen it all~ Forever classy, cameos are such wearable works of art that can become the best family heirlooms and are terrific investment pieces! This piece will delight :)
thanks so much for admiring her! **LIsting for cameo only, shells pictured are just to illustrate the natural shell ;) **
