This lovely angel skin coral cameo lavalier is beautifully set in 10K gold and accented with freshwater pearls. This delicate pendant is from my own collection and it dates to around 1900. The oval cameo is set in a knife edge setting with two etched leaves and three freshwater pearls. At the top just under the bail are two tiny seed pearls set in another leaf. The bail is pierced and marked 10K on the curved top where it's very difficult to see and photograph. It is suspended from what appears to be the original chain which fastens with a slide catch. The catch is marked EM Co.
The pendant, excluding the bail measures 1 1/8 inch long. The bail adds another 1/4 inch. It is 7/8 inch wide and the chain is 18 1/2 inches long. It is in excellent condition - I see no problems with this one.
