This is a well carved and handsome Cameo brooch. With the grapes and leaves in her hair this is obviously a follower of Bacchus the God of Wine. The surround of this Cameo is at least 14K gold (tested) with detail and can be a brooch or a pendant. The Cameo is 2 1/8" by 1 5/8" and has a secure clasp. I tried to shine light through it so you could see that it does not have any cracks. What I think my pictures failed to depict is that she comes away from the surface of the shell and has depth. Please look at Cameos carefully, within any group of Cameos you can see the ones which are crudely carved and those that are works of art. This is a very wonderful Cameo.
