This classic necklace is made of sterling silver (marked 925), and has an oval cameo pendant. The cameo is made of carved two-tone iridescent shell, or mother-of-pearl. The light brown rusty colored head is of a Roman soldier on a creamy white background. The 1 1/8" long (not counting the bail) oval pendant has a frame of tiny sparkling marcasites as does the bail. The sterling chain measures 21" long. Everything is in excellent condition with no wear or damage.
