Large antique Edwardian 10k rose gold cameo brooch pin pendant. Absolutely gorgeous details, this hand carved natural shell cameo depicts (Greek) Demeter, or (Roman) Ceres: Goddess of the Harvest, identified by the chaff of wheat accent in her head dress. The brooch measures 2-1/4" x 1-3/4", the shell itself measures 2" (50mm) x 1-1/2". Set in a 10k rose gold mounting with beautifully engraved bezel. Hallmarked "10K" on the fold over safety clasp. Also maker signed letter "Z" in a diamond shaped logo. In excellent condition. Has a folding bail so that it can also be worn as a pendant. Circa 1900-1910. Ziething & Company- 68 Orchard Street- Newark, New Jersey. Advertised in the trade publications Jewelers Circular and Keystone in the early 1900's. Manufacturers of 10k and 14k jewelry.

Please do note that all natural shell cameos when held to strong light will show fine growth lines to some extent, which is unique to each individual piece.

Cameos make an incredible traditional bridal gift from mother to daughter, usually given with the intent of wearing at the wedding ceremony, and to eventually pass down to their own daughter. They also make a very popular choice for "Something Borrowed". We recommend storing fine cameo jewelry individually in a crush proof box, away from any other pieces that may damage them. Do not exposed to extreme cold temperatures, and occasionally you should moisturize the shell with olive or mineral oil. Please clean the mounting only with a very mild liquid soap such as Dove Liquid, a soft toothbrush, and a very gentle scrubbing action. Rinse well with plain tepid (luke warm) water, pat dry gently with a soft towel, and re-moisturize the shell cameo with oil after it is thoroughly dry.
