Presented here is a natural Amethyst and cultured Pearl necklace that all started with this beautiful and rare Mother of Pearl Cameo. The carving is very detailed and it is carved completely from one shell. Meaning the face and base are one piece. This organic material is stunning iridescent whites and grays that have little rainbows when the light hits at certain angles. The intricate carving is a Museum Quality of a Male Portrait in Profile most likely meant to be Zeus. He is a strong, bearded and handsome man with a laurel crown of leaves on his head. I have attached the cameo to a Cultured South Sea Pearl that is carved into a skull. The eyes are set with faceted natural Amethyst and are set directly into the pearl. The skull is attached top and bottom with solid 14K gold findings and hang from a strand of more Natural African Amethysts, white AAA cultured pearls and small cultured Peacock pearls. The necklace is finished with a solid 14K gold spring ring clasp. The necklace is 21 inches long. Skull and Cameo are 1.75 inches long. The Handcarved Mother of Pearl cameo is Antique Victorian Circa 1860-1880.
