This is a very incredible Vintage Juliana DeLizza & Elster Intaglio Cameo Pendant Brooch that is a Book Piece. Please see The Art of Juliana Jewelry by Katerina Musetti page 73. The book describes the piece as "layers of gilded gold leaves encase the lovely centerpiece in this iridescent intaglio brooch. The pendant brooch has a beautiful silhouette carved from the back in reverse with an intense watermelon finish. Aurora borealis chatons encase the pendant". In extraordinary beautiful condition, one tip of one of the marquise cut aurora borealis stones framing the cameo has darkened. The gold tone setting is nice and shiny and the roll over clasp is nice and tight. There is a little bend in the pin. Depending upon which way you hold the cameo, you get the watermelon coloring to the cameo surrounded by shades of coral and canary yellow, or green with lavender blue hues. The brooch is 5/8" thick. The length is 2 1/4" and width 1 7/8". The piece has a bail in the back so that the pendant could be worn on a chain. Extraordinarily beautiful.
