This is a lovely and beautiful cameo the whole cameo and edge is 1 1/2 inches tall and would make an impressive pin. This also has a hook to pass a chain so you could also use it as a pendant. It is also fun to put the necklace around you neck and pin the brooch to the dress. The cameo part is almost 1 1/4. 1 1/2 wide. Most cameos are made in Italy. To you from the high plains of Kansas!
