These beautiful carved cameo earrings have nice detailing on the cameos as well as the gold holding them. The profile of a woman is carved in a white hard stone with a black onyx or possibly glass background. The clothing the woman is wearing has a very soft feel to it as it is sculpted expertly, her hair is swept up into a bun there is a very Roman or Greek feel to the subject. The gold work around the cameo has been tested at 10k, it is beautifully detailed with granulation and scrolls, the outside edge has a marvelous intricate border.

Things to note: There is a crack going through the white portion of the cameo near the bottom of each bust, one of the cracks goes completely through the backing of one of the black stones as well, it looks like both have been repaired where cracked. Bottom photo, earring on left shows crack through back.

Tested, unmarked 10k.
