This convertible pin/pendant cameo is just beautiful! The cameo is of a left facing woman in profile. It is bezel-set into a 10K rose gold frame that is octagonal in shape and has cut-out corners into which a single small pearl has been mounted in each corner. The rose gold frame is hand chased with a very fine and delicate design all over.
The piece is a little over 7/8 inches by 11/16 inches. It has a retractable loop in the back which, when deployed, adds about 1/4 inch to the height of the piece.
The pin has a locking C-catch that is marked "10K".
Signed at the bottom of the back with a maker's mark that I do not recognize. It looks like a letter N inside a sideways diamond shape.
Very good condition! The rose gold has that beautiful old gold glow to it. Note that the pin stem is slightly bent. And please note that I have not cleaned this piece at all.
