This antique cameo is exquisitely made! The 14 karat yellow gold backing was crafted by hand, and each small cultured seed pearl was set by hand. The main stone is onyx, expertly decorated with milligrain and twisting wire, and edged with pretty cultured pearls. This in turn is topped with a collectors quality carving in the profile of a Victorian Matron, likely Queen Victorian herself.. This piece dates to the early 1900s.
