The carving of this striking cameo is among the best we have ever seen. The 14K gold frame echoes the curls of the beauty’s hair. The frame is highlighted by three glowing pearls at each corner. The back opens to allow a photo or other memento to be placed in the locket space.
The cameo is excellent size for wear on a jacket or sweater. It measures two inches in width and two and one half inches top to bottom. The depth of the cameo is three quarters of an inch. The safety clasp is marked 14K and there is a fold down bale which makes it possible to wear the brooch as a pendent.
Its condition is excellent.
