Large 10K Rose Gold Cameo Pin/PendantLarge 10K Rose Gold Cameo Pin/PendantLarge 10K Rose Gold Cameo Pin/PendantLarge 10K Rose Gold Cameo Pin/Pendant

This beautiful shell cameo dates from between 1900 and 1925 with its old-fashioned reverse-lever safety catch (marked "10K"). There is a hinged bail to allow the brooch to be worn as a pendant if desired. The cameo itself is of superior workmanship, depicting a classic Greek Goddess profile. The hair has lots of detail. The clothing is ancient Greek as well. The shell cameo is hand-carved and bezel-set by hand as well. The gold mounting is Victorian in style with a pretty chip-engraved frieze around the edge. This cameo is in excellent original condition. It measures 1 11/16" across, 2 1/16" high, and 3/8" thick. This one is gorgeous.
