Modern 14K yellow gold cameo brooch. This nicely carved shell cameo of a pretty young woman is done in very high relief. She wears a band through her wavy hair, which is tied back and gently drapes along her shoulder line. The 14K gold frame is simple, and the bale has a large elongated shape which would accommodate a good size chain; the opening measures 1/8 inch wide by just a hair under 1/4 inch high. The pendant measures just over 1 1/4 inches long (not including the bail) by 1inches wide by 1/2 inches deep. It is in nice condition with no chips or cracks, and dates to the latter half of the 20th century. It is not marked but does acid test to 14K gold.
