We have not cleaned this beautiful piece and really enjoy the patina within the carving. The setting is signed 14k and is solid white gold with a revolving bail to wear it as a necklace and a working pin closure. The figure is wearing a pleated garment, a flower wreath in her hair and a very Roman like profile. This cameo is not cracked or splintered in anyway and it is very securely set. The piece measures 1.5 x 1.25" and weighs 6.6 g. Please view all the photos and let us know if you have any questions. We do have other cameos for sale, be sure to check them out.
