Vintage 14K Gold, Freshwater Pearl & Pink Shell Cameo Pin or Pendant
Welcome to ROBINS NEST MIDWEST!
It's not often you come into a lifetime collection of cameos all in one place but happen to find I did. First time offered to the public - first time seen on the Internet, the collection comprises cameos from all over the world, set in gold & silver, adorned with pearls & diamonds, and made from different materials including coral, hard stone sardonyx, brown shell, pink shell and yes, even some hand painted portrait miniature pieces - one such piece from a Maker Name! So, may I present now.....
AGE: C.1930/1940 or so
ITEM: A lovely yellow gold pin/pendant combo featuring a pale pink shell carved cameo of a Goddess (she wears a crescent moon in her hair). The filigree setting is embellished with leafy bits and at the top is one freshwater pearl (lots of opalescence) that I believe to be natural. Old fashioned safety catch at the back along with a swivel bale.
CONDITION: Very nice with no problems I can spot. Cameo is VERY nicely carved and not the "hurry up and finish" type of centerpiece. No chipped nose, etc.
METAL CONTENT: 14K Gold
HALLMARKS: 14K on the catch
SIZE: Frame measures 1-5/16" wide x 1-3/4" high.
WEIGHT: 13.8 grams
FINAL COMMENTS: Just a lovely piece of vintage jewelry!
