This pretty Victorian pendant features a carved shell cameo of Flora, goddess of spring, her hair garlanded with flowers. The cameo has a slightly undulating, sloping profile and is set within a polished, faceted Whitby jet mount.

The pendant needs only a bail or suspension ring attaching to the top to be worn on a chain or ribbon; alternatively it could form the focal point of a more ornate custom-made necklace. I leave these creative possibilities for the purchaser to explore.

It is in good used condition with normal signs of age-related wear including light surface scratches and a very small chip to the back. What might appear as a stress line at the top of the cameo is a just part of natural colour variation in this particular shell.

Overall it measures 51mm x 37mm (2" x 1 7/16") approx.
