We are very pleased to offer this Victorian Lava parure. This incredible set includes a bracelet, ring and pin. All pieces are comprised of oval shaped cameos carved in lava and set in silver. The bracelet features 9 cameos with a black center one for a focal point. Each individual cameo measures 5/8" x 1/2" and the entire bracelet measures 6.5". This charming item features a box clasp with a cameo on it as well. The tongue on the clasp was broken and we have had it repaired with a hand-crafted piece from a jeweler. All the other pieces of this set are original! The cameos in the bracelet are set so that pairs face one another. The accompanying pin is a single cameo, the same size as the bracelet cameos. It features a "C" clasp and ball hinge. The final piece in this trio is a ring. Again a cameo, however, this one is slightly smaller measuring 1/2" x 3/8". The ring is approximately a size 4.5. All pieces are in a "fresh" state. They have been handcrafted with incredible detail, but there are irregularities consistent with this form of craftsmanship. This antique set is in excellent condition! There are no maker's marks, however, that is not unusual due to the age of this set. We have no idea where Dorothy acquired this amazing set.
