This is an exquisite Art Nouveau Era stamped 14K Cameo brooch which can also be worn as a pendant. The carving on this cameo is exceptional with special attention to detail. It is of a beautiful woman holding a bouquet of flowers. The detail in her hair including a strand of carved beads is perfect. What is really special is that she is wearing a diamond bracelet and diamond earring with small accent diamonds. The gold frame has an ornate and intricate design. This brooch has the loop so it can also be worn on a chain as a pendant. The cameo measures 2" by 1 1/2" at the widest and 2 1/8" by 1 5/8" with the gold frame. The cameo is in excellent original condition with no cracks or stress lines. The gold frame has a very slightly irregular shape which is expected with the age of the brooch. This is one of the finest cameo examples from the elegant Art Nouveau Era.
