This pretty, French, gold filled, cameo pendant is marked 'Oria'. I might be wrong but I have come to the conclusion that this is a mid 20th century version of a nineteenth century design.

Oria is a mark similar to Fix. Both specialised in gold filled jewellery which would deceive an onlooker into believing it was the real thing.

The pendant is 1 ¾” (4.5cms) long, including the bail, by 1 and 1 and 1/8” (3cms) wide. It weighs 4.5 grams.

The shiny gold frame is delicately pierced and ornamented with fleur de lis and acanthus leaves. The cameo is mounted high within an inner decorative frame. A pretty lady with ringlets is sculpted from pale pink shell.
The mark, 'Oria', is present on the ring at the top , together with a maker’s mark. There is a solid bail.

The back is quite deep. Hold it to the light and you will see that the shell is quite translucent. I wonder whether it might once have has a locket back.

This delightful pendant is in lovely vintage condition and comes to you tissue wrapped in a gift box.
