A well carved full face Victorian coral cameo in a lovely 14k gold frame. The coral is a deep salmon color and exhibits a fine grain as well as some small pits that are noticeable on the front under magnification and obvious in the back. This has been carved in high relief with the face projecting out a 1/4 inch from the frame. There are no chips or loss to the face and the frame is in excellent condition. I could find no issues whatsoever which is remarkable given the age of this piece. The clasp is a c clasp with a tube hinge. The bale is a clip on bale so it can be clipped over necklace that might not otherwise fit through a closed bale. There are no purity marks on the piece but it has been tested and there is a small scrape on the back of the frame where there was a test sample taken. Tests at 14k. This can be worn on a chain or as a brooch. The bale simply hangs down the back of the cameo when being used as a brooch. Truly art to wear!
