COMMENTS: Just purchased from a local estate a large lovely carved cameo drop earrings. The cameo is hard stone very nicely carved to depict a beautiful young woman. The background is angel skin coral and has a high relief carving of a Victorian lady. Hard stone cameos are more durable than shell cameos, therefore they are more valuable and of finer quality. Hard stone cameos have been carved in gemstone since ancient times and used on helmets, military accessories sword handles, rings, vases, cups and dishes. This Exquisite Cameo faces left which is additionally harder-to-find. The cameo is in the estate condition we received it. We will clean it before shipping free of charge at your request.
