Huge ART DECO Cameo Pin - 14K Gold, Cornelian Shell, Lady Wearing Diamond Necklace

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! So, may I offer....525

AGE: C.1920/1930 or so - Art Deco period

ITEM: Set in a yellow gold filigree pin/pendant setting, here's a cornelian shell cameo (bezel set) depicting the profile of a lady (facing right) wearing a diamond necklace (en habille). The cameo is nicely carved with great detail, the lady dressed in Greek or Roman fashion (loose tunic dress).

When held to the light, the cameo shows only perfection!

CONDITION: Excellent! Old fashioned safety catch at the back to wear as a pin along with a swivel bale so that the piece may be worn as a pendant.

METAL CONTENT: 14K Gold

HALLMARKS: A very faint 14K on the catch.

DIAMOND: One diamond set in pale yellow gold. The stone measures 3.2mm (10 points), is G-H in color and is graded SI1.

SIZE: The piece, with bale down, measures 2-1/4" x 2". Depth is about 1/2".

WEIGHT: 24.2 grams

FINAL COMMENTS: I'm sorry my pics are not the best. Photo'ing cameos is always a tricky process for me and I have to omit the flash to show the detail to the carving of the piece. Those who love cameos, however, will be able to ascertain just how wonderful this pin/pendant combo is!
