Gorgeous Antique Hand Carved Shell Cameo depicting a beautiful lady with long dangle earrings, pearl necklace with a pendant, and very usual hair band.
Her face is the most attractive, the nose, mouth, chin, even eye bow are so very well and flawless done! Her hair are full of amazing details too! A classic beauty, my pictures don't do justice!
The cameo is set in a large silver ornament frame loaded with sparkling marcasite stones. All stones are presents and all in great condition, shining like rose cut diamonds!
Condition is EXCELLENT all around, cameo has a few faintest short lines to the upper left corner, which is commonly seen. Marked "sterling" to the back, still retains its original safety chain, and the pin back is in perfect working order.
This is a large piece, measures 2 3/8" by 1 7/8", weight a substantial 24.4g.
