The Cameo Lady...she's the most enduring piece of jewelry there is. This perennial beauty is hand-carved in genuine shell. She's set in a fine open-work sterling silver frame, made by Wells. It's both a brooch and a pendant.
There's great detail in her beautiful profile. There's a ring of flowers edging the frame, complimenting the flower on her dress.
The pin measures 1 1/2 inches across by 1 3/4 inches high. The back has both a secure rollover clasp and a loop for a chain. It's marked WELLS STER. The cameo weighs 9.9 grams. It's in excellent condition. Circa 1950s.
The cameo is the one piece of jewelry with a long cherished tradition.
