Just in time for the Holidays! This ANTIQUE rose and yellow Etruscan Revival pendant/brooch has so many of the elements that make the style intriguing: tiny gold balls in an arc around the hard stone cameo, architectural heavy gold detail work, six tiny arrows at the bottom, more gold balls on the outer rim, and a heavy gold bail. It can be worn both a brooch, having a secure clasp, or as a pendant, using the heavy bail on your own chain. It was bought from a very reputable dealer and sold as gold (probably 14K) but, like so much antique jewelry, the gold content isn't marked. It is not gold-filled. The stone cameo is detailed and in full relief, and there is a glass locket on the reverse for a keepsake. A lock of gold hair still remains . . . that of a loved one or a lover??? This striking piece measures 1 5/8" tall, including the bail. The quality of the setting is evocative of the style made so popular in the 1880's with so much attention to detail. Return privilege if not fully satisfied if returned in EXACTLY the same condition in which it was sent and insured. Be sure to see the listing in this shop for antique earrings that look gorgeous with this pendant! Ask Santa for the whole set, and be ready to accept compliments as the gold catches the light, and the beauty of the settings frame perfect cameos!
