At first look, we thought this was an old Victorian cameo. It looks that good. But it's a piece of costume jewelry, made with all the sensibilities of its antique inspiration.
Most striking is the size of this cameo. It's a big one, measuring 2 by 2 1/2 inches. It can be worn as a pin or a pendant and looks beautiful either way.
The lovely cameo girl is carved white resin on a russet background. She's wearing an orchid on her dress, a double strand of pearls, and her hair is curled to perfection. The gold-tone metal frame is just the right enhancement for her pretty profile.
The back has a secure rollover clasp and a bail that snaps open/closed for easy addition to a chain. We added a chain which is included. Overall in excellent condition. Circa 1970. The look may be Victorian but the price is wearer-friendly costume.
