A wonderful large antique Victorian Faux Tortoise Cuff Bracelet set with a very high relief Shell Cameo mounted in a Gold Filled Bezel. The outside diameter of the bracelet is a larger 3 inch width, with the inside 2-1/2 inches, and the opening 1-1/2inches. This is an excellent example of fine craftsmanship in that the Cameo mounting was completely hand fabricated to the bracelet with eight circular raised gold bezels to fit the curved raised edge of the cuff and then pinned with three gold pins on the underside.
This beautifully carved Cameo is a total of 42 mm X 34 mm counting the setting with the actual shell cameo 35 mm X 26 mm. The Cameo is carved in very high relief and is in excellent condition with no damage. The provenance is attributed to Italy.
Definitely an unusual and beautiful Antique Cameo Faux Tortoise Cuff Bracelet for the admirer / collector of jewelry from the Victorian era!
