Stunning carved cameo features a bust of a woman with diamond necklace. The face, hair, clothing, and background are quite detailed and finely carved. This has a 14 K gold setting, which is marked on the reverse on the c-clasp. This dates to the 1920's and possibly earlier. The diamond was examined by my jeweler and guaranteed to be authentic. This measures 1 1/2 inches from top to bottom (actually just a bit more) and 1 1/4 inches wide (4 by 3 cm). This is a lovely antique cameo with no chips or cracks. This can be worn as a brooch or pendant; it has a movable bale that can easily be tucked away.
A true, hand wrought treasure from a bygone era which sits in stark contrast to today's cameos which are mostly cut using lasers.
