This mid-19th century piece of jewelry is very rare. The pendant is hardstone cameo set in a 14 K white gold filigree. This setting is beaded and provides the perfect oval frame for the white and reddish-orange portrait and also contains a tiny chain. A woman with laurels in her curly hair stares out on the distant world, giving the viewer a right-sided profile of a true beauty. The soft hues on a hard surface are rapturous! This would make a statement at any social outing or add the perfect climactic touch to any cameo collection.
