Every so often a treasure like this comes along to remind us just how wonderful vintage jewelry can be. Of course it is considered a mere collectible until it reaches it's 100th birthday, in my opinion this vintage charmer is a classic treasure that could not be any more grand if it had reached it's antique status.
The French word Habille refers to a gem within a gem and describes the gracious cameo wearing a jeweled necklace. This style of cameo became popular in the early Art Deco era. She is beautifully done with lovely crisp details and soft color variations in the shell.
This estate keepsake is set in a 10K yellow gold frame with a twisted rope border and accented by a white gold necklace. The cameo is wearing a geometric Deco necklace set with a tiny diamond. This piece can be worn as a pin or pendant and is hallmarked 10K. It measures 1-3/4'' x 1-1/4''. Lovely condition with age appropriate wear.
