Cameos are timeless, classic, elegant and always statement pieces. These earrings are no exception. Carved in relief from carnelian shell, cameos were thought to attract health and good fortune. I'm not sure about that but they are delicate works of art. Someone, somewhere, sometime in the long-ago past carved these beauties. One woman is facing right and the other is facing left. The earrings measure approximately 1/2" long x 3/8" wide. The backs of each are marked "1/20 12KT HG GOLD FILLED".
