Unusual Antique Large Cameo Silhouette En Habille Brooch Pendant with Large Diamonds!
Unusual Large Diamond Habille Cameo brooch pendant. If you are looking for something unusual and dramatic in a cameo this is it! Unusual in that it is frame less, the shell cameo is cut in a silhouette around the head and torso. This gives it a slightly more contemporary and wearable look in my opinion. I have also never seen such large diamonds set in a cameo. They are old mine cut diamonds and her necklace is .30 and the diamond on her shoulder is a full 1/4 carat. Beautiful sparkle that only these old diamonds have. The cameo itself is fine quality with her hair richly adorned with grapes and grape leaves. Very sweet full face on this goddess. The cameo measures 53mm inches tall by 40mm. The hinge pin closes with a very secure locking c-clasp and also has a loop so a chain could be added.The cameo shell is very thick and the setting very heavy for centuries of durability. A fabulous and unusual cameo for your collection.
Gender: Female, Age Group: Adult, Color: cameo, Size: large
