This vintage Art Deco shell cameo of a female in profile is bezel set in an ornate yellow gold frame. A wonderful feature of this piece is it can be worn as a brooch or as a pendant. The rear of the pin shows a hinged bail connected to the top of the cameo allowing for the dual fashion statement depending upon your mood and clothing choice.
The entire pin measures 3.4 cm x 2.8 cm. The cameo is 26 mm x 20 mm. It is not clearly marked, but tested as 10 karat gold and weighs 5.3 grams. It is in great vintage condition.
