This is a very interesting piece. We believe the hand carved shell cameo is much older than the solid 9K yellow gold (marked "9ct") frame. It depicts a winged Goddess walking while driving a snake with what appears to be a olive branch. There is also a star shinning over her forehead.

We are not sure which Goddess is this, she may be a very early version of depiction of Artemis (or Diana) whose sacred animal is snake, or she may be Angitia, Goddess of snake and healing. In any account the cameo is in wonderful condition, no damage and free of lines.

Set in a 9K yellow gold frame to be worn as a brooch, measures approx. 1-7/8 inches by 1-3/8 inches, weighs approx. 7 grams. The pin back bends a little bit nevertheless is in good working order.
