This Mid Century beauty has it all - sweet profile carving en habille with both a brooch pin and pendant bail. Simply lovely, this cameo offers a modern day goddess complete with diamond necklace, en habille. Perfection condition with original brooch pin and pendant bail, so it is ready to gift and wear upon arrival.
This cameo is carved from richly hued carnelian shell (Cassis Rufa). The carving captures a modern 1960's beauty in left profile. Offering picture perfect facial features and a cascade of short curls, the young woman wears an elegant genuine diamond necklace, fitted with a 3 (2mm) point diamond. Her draped gown is embellished with a corsage at her right shoulder. The cameo is bezel set in a 12K gold fill mount with a double twisted wire surround, one wire smooth and the other threaded. The frame is fitted with both a locking brooch pin and a stationary wide mouth pendant bail for wear as a necklace. The frame is hallmarked "12K GF" and the cameo weighs 6.5 grams.
This cameo is in excellent condition with the shell supple and free of chips or cracks. It is flawless when candled to the light. There is no wear to the gold fill bezel or surround, with slight loss of gold along the brooch pin and clasp. The oversized bail looks untouched by time, so likely was never used. At 1-3/8", this is a great size for a cameo brooch/pendant combination. This cameo can easily accommodate any size or length chain. The large bail has an opening of approximately 4mm, which makes it easy to mix and match with chains already in your jewelry collection. And this size cameo looks great worn on any neckline, or a pocket or jacket lapel. Just easy to wear and love.
This cameo will be delivered in a nice presentation case, perfect for gift giving and storage, along with a copy of our easy cameo care instructions.
