Yellow Garage Antiques is pleased to present a beautiful 18K gold hand painted cameo portrait brooch or pendant created by Italian jewelry designer Oreste Giovanni Corletto. Having partnered with Tishman and Lipp, Carletto quickly became a highly regarded leader in jewelry design in cities such Rome, Paris and New York in the early 1960s. “His designs were inspired by nature and figurative art, and he was known for his fine quality and craftsmanship.” This spectacular piece features a finely detailed and delicate hand painted portrait depicting a lovely young woman. Single cut diamonds adorn her headpiece and an emerald gemstone sparkles in her necklace. The image is protected behind glass and elegantly set in an 18K gold frame. Pearls surround the gold frame further highlighting the miniature work of art. An etched gold bail or pin clasp allow the piece to be worn as a pendant or brooch. Hallmarks on the back of the cameo include Corletto, KT18 and Italy. Measuring 1 3/4” high and 1 3/8” wide this unique hand crafted piece is a timeless and exquisite jewelry offering.
