This is a stunning antique Victorian era carved cameo pendant. It is an oval carved shell cameo pendant in an intricate sterling setting. The cameo is a traditional, delicious sunset pink-tone shell, and the silhouette of the figure is matte white. It depicts the profile of a beautiful Victorian-era woman, with cascading ringlet curls and a pearl necklace, gazing softly to the side. The shell is nestled into an intricate wirework setting. This hand-carved cameo is a detailed yet illustrative style, with a gorgeous softness and accessibility in its style. The loop for the pendant is quite small and hand-twisted, so this piece is best to be worn on a thin, delicate chain.

The cameo is in excellent antique condition with age-appropriate wear. There is some age-appropriate patina to the metal, mainly on the back of the piece, as visible in photographs.

It measures 1 5/8 inches long and 1 1/4 inches wide.
