Woow, what a beauty! The Art Deco beauty features a beautiful 14K(tested) White Gold Filigree frame. The hand carved shell cameo is cut into hexagon shape, which is quite unusual and very deco.
The carving is exquisite, depicting a beautiful marble like lady profile with lovely floral adorn her hair and shoulder. The lady wears a large earring and a real diamond necklace! The diamond is an old European cut 2.25mm stone (approx 5pt), white and clean full of sparkle! This kind of cameos are also known as "Habille" and are very desirable.
The piece measures 1-7/8" long by 1-1/2" wide. It is a brooch pendant combo, the original fold down bail is missing but the hinge to hold the bail is still there, a jump ring can easily added (in a few second) to run your favorite chain through and worn as a pendant. There are a couple of very short and faint nature lines to the upper corner of the shell. Original pin back is in perfect working order. Overall in very gold condition. Would make an impressive gift!
