Welcome to my shop, The Strands of Time. I hope that you will enjoy browsing through the fine vintage and antique jewelry items in the shop and find something that is special. Please refer to “Terms of Sale” on each page.
Left facing cameos are a little more rare than right facing. This pretty left facing lady is carved out of shell and set in 10K gold. The pin shaft and closure are 10K gold.
The piece can be worn as both a pin and pendant. As a pendant it has a 1 5/16 inch drop. As a pin it is 1 1/4 inch north/south and 1 1/16 inch wide. The lady has beautiful curvature that was difficult to capture in photos. Also, she is a little more creamy than some photos show.
The setting tests solid 14K gold at all points. The pink safety closure is hallmarked "10K" and also has a maker's mark, "ESEMCO." The cameo was made in the 1940's, possibly earlier.
Any streaks that you may see in the cameo are caused by reflections and there is no crazing or damage. The cameo is in excellent condition and weighs 4.4 grams.
NOTE: The chain is for demonstration purposes only and not included in the sale.
I am always open to reasonable offers but, if items are reduced or on sale, they are probably already at the lowest prices.
Thank you for visiting my shop and please come back again. I add new items regularly.
NOTE: I offer lay-a-way services for all items. Please refer to “Terms of Sale” on each page.
