A fabulous hand carved genuine coral cameo of a lovely young lady in profile.
The natural coral is a soft color with slight variations, the white on the back shows that it has not been treated or dyed.
The carving is beautifully executed with smooth flowing lines, great detail and high relief.
It is set in a 14k gold bezel with fine twisted wire around it and framed with a delicate cannetille filigree with coils and tiny beads.
The top and bottom of the filigree each have a prong set diamond flanked with peg set seed pearls.
Excellent condition, no damage or visible wear, marked 14k on the old style safety catch that works in reverse. The line on the back is not a crack, it is a natural growth line in the coral and is very shallow.
There is a fold down bail so that the cameo can be worn as a pendant.
Dimensions of the piece are 1.25" by .75", the coral cameo measures .75" by just over 5/8" (21mm 16mm).
Total weight is 6 grams.
