Amazingly preserved vintage hard stone cameo! Hand carved in blue agate, this rare and unique cameo is set in a solid 18K gold decorated frame. The hard stone cameos are more durable and are much more difficult to carve than the shell cameos, thus they are much more valuable.
This beautiful gem has a non-trivial portrait depicting a young lady wearing a beautiful evening dress. Her classy and non-nonsense outfit plus a very hip hairstyle put this portrait out of context of time!
This pendant dates back to 1950-60`s and comes from a private family collection in the North of France. The cameo is custom made (not factory production) and is carrying it`s creators` signature. This gem has both a pendant hanger as well as a pin, hence can be worn as a brooch as well.
This is a very special and beautiful estate piece - hope it finds a new home soon!
