Vintage 14K Gold, Cornelian Shell & Diamond "En Habille" Cameo Pin/Pendant Combo
Welcome to ROBINS NEST MIDWEST! May I offer….
AGE: C.1920 or so - around the Art Deco era
ITEM: Set in a pin/pendant setting, here's a lovingly carved cornelian shell cameo of a lady (profile right) wearing a heart-shaped diamond pendant "en habille". The white gold filigree border features leafy appliques at a number of points. Back pin is held fast in an old-fashioned safety catch and there is a small swivel bale at the top so that the piece can be worn as a necklace.
CONDITION: Very nice with no problems I can spot. The white gold setting holding the diamond has definitely patinated to a darker color thus emphasizing the diamond in the pendant.
METAL CONTENT: 14K Gold
HALLMARKS: 14K on the old fashioned catch
SIZE: Frame measures 1-11/16" x 1-3/8" wide.
WEIGHT: 13.3 grams
DIAMONDS: The gemstones number 3 and measure approximately 1.5mm (1.5 points) in the hair and 2mm (3 points) around the neck.
FINAL COMMENTS: WoW!
