This high relief cameo is a gem! The carving is excellent and intricate. The gold work is delicate. Look at her beautiful hair and the detailing of her gown. The woman is white against a pale pink background.
Both the pendant loop and brooch are original to the piece. When not in use, the pendant loop folds/swiveling under.
The gold work is 10k marked solid gold. The ribbon work is rose gold and the 4 leaf accents are in yellow gold.
The cameo is 40mm long(over 1 1/2 inches) and 32mm across (1 1/4 inches) wide. It is just under a half inch thick. It weighs 10.2 grams.
I cannot tell how old she is but my estimate is that she was made in the 1940's.
The natural swirls of the shell might appear to you as minute cracks in the pictures but I guarantee that they are just swirls. Every aspect of this pendant is in excellent condition!!!
