This vintage necklace can also double as a pin! It has a prong-set oval shell cameo of an attractive lady with an up-swept hair style and a cute, pert nose in profile. The cameo is set within a sterling silver ornate frame with round glinting marcasite stones prong-set all around the decorative open work surround. The bail matches the frame surround and has a marcasite stone as well. The cameo is suspended from a 17 1/2 inch sterling silver chain.
The matching bail is stamped "Germany" and "Sterling A835." It is sterling silver. The necklace is stamped "Automade Sterling" and is also sterling silver.
The cameo is 1 1/8 inches x 7/8 inch and the pendant is 2 inches x 1 5/16 inches with the bail. The necklace weighs 11.4 grams. The pendant is in excellent condition. You can see on the back there is a red pen mark, but it does not show through to the front.
