Beeeuuutiful old pin cameo features a lovely lady against a subtle soft pink background.
I really love the way she looks. The style of her hair and the earring is just marvelous with all the contours and crevices.
The shaft as well as the mounting is of 10 karat gold. It is not marked, but was tested to be so.
This is a pretty good size pin measuring 2 3/8" long. Cameo is 3/4"L x 5/8"W x ¼" D.
Condition is excellent. Back of pin shows a slight line of demarcation or a slight shallow crack. I assure you this does not go through or show on the front at all. Even with my super loupe the face of the cameo including the background is perfect.
Because the coral was made by Mother Nature, you can see a small crease at the 11 o'clock position. Side photos show a teeny bit of matter within the coral as well. Very difficult to see with the naked eye as it is so small. Please note that my photos were taken very close and with great magnification that picks up things that are not really noticeable in person.
This is one gorgeous little wearable work of art. Satisfaction guaranteed.
There's a good bit of gold and the entire pin weighs 2.6 grams.
