I am proud to present this fabulous cameo set. It consists of a pendant on a chain and a ring. The set came out of the estate in a box with markings saying Cottage House Jewellers Dublin. I don't know if this was original to the piece. The box will be included. I would date the parure to the early part of the 20th Century.
The pendant which measures about 1 1/2" in length, has an oval shape and is set into rose gold. It has a bale which is hinged and can be turned down to conceal it if desired. It has no markings, but has been carefully tested to be 18 karat. The beautiful front facing cameo shows a woman with curls and an Elizabethan style lace collar. She is wearing pendant earrings and a beaded necklace with a pendant drop. She is quite beautiful. A 14 karat hallmarked chain, which I do not believe is original to the piece, came with the pendant. The chain has a length of 18".
The matching ring is a size 7 and is hallmarked 750, for 18 karat gold. It is also rose gold and has a navette shape. The cameo shows the same wonderful details that is on the pendant, but on a slightly smaller scale. The center of the ring has a length of 1 1/8".
The set has a combined weight of 10.7 grams and is in fine antique condition.
