Offered is an incredible cameo carved from shell in high relief. Not only is the woman beautiful, but the attention paid to both her hair and clothing is exquisite. A butterfly rests on her shoulder.
The cameo is set into a delicate filigree frame of 10K yellow gold (marked). The pin has an early safety clasp (post 1895) and could date anywhere from 1895-1930.
This piece is versatile and can be worn as a pin or a necklace. Cameos are also beautiful as pearl enhancers if you take a long strand and use the pin to join them into a shorter strand (see the photos showing this; the pearls are not included in this listing).
Measuring 2" x 1.5" and weighing 12 grams, this is a beautiful piece to add to your cameo collection or as a special "something old" wedding jewelry gift.
