This is a beautiful antique shell cameo en habille in a lovely 14K filigree white gold setting. The cameo is very nicely carved and features a necklace with a small diamond. She dates to the early part of the 20th century. She can be worn as either a brooch or a pendant as there is a pin back and a swivel bail. The catch is marked 14K and is an older style of safety catch.
It measures about 1 5/8 inches by 1 1/4 inches. There is a small hairline crack on the back of the cameo that does not go through to the front. There are also a couple of striations in the shell as are often found in shell cameos. The price reflects the damage and offers a chance to own a very beautiful piece at a somewhat lower price.
