Gorgeous 19th Century, Victorian Intaglio Cut Black Onyx Pendant / Charm set in a beautiful 14K Gold mounting with a gold Eagle (?) atop the black square intaglio of a woman's profile. The carved intaglio profile resembles ancient Greek / Roman coins. Intricately carved inside a circle. The square / circle ratio is stunning and bold. The Victorian Intaglio Cameo Pendant / Victorian Intaglio Cameo Charm is mounted on gold on the reverse and held in place by squared prongs. Beautifully made and beautifully proportioned. The Black Onyx is shiny and does have some scratching consistent with age and wear, though is more evident in the highly magnified photos than in person. The pieces measures 1/2" x 1/2" with a 1/2 bale. See photographs next to a ruler for scale. It's an absolutely lovely Victorian piece. Would look stunning around the neck worn as a Pendant or just as pretty dangling as a Charm on a Charm Bracelet. The Black Onyx and Gold Intaglio Cameo Charm / Pendant was assayed to determine the carat at 14K. Shows well in the photos and even prettier in person! The photographs were taken with and without a camera flash!
