These small, feminine screw back earrings measure 5/8 inch by ½ inch. White shell cameos, with a hint of pink, are nicely carved with female faces facing right and left. The detail of the hair and bead necklace is very nice especially considering the small size. The noses are turned down, generally a sign of an older cameo. The stones are bezel set in unmarked sterling, confirmed by my jeweler. There is a twisted rope wire encircling the setting that appears to have a gold wash. Condition is good with no visible damage; the fittings work well. We are dating the earrings to the Victorian era or early 1900s; they are probably Italian in origin. These are earrings to treasure!
