About

Extremely fine Victorian shell cameo encased by an 18k yellow gold repousse bezel and containing a mythological portrait. A hand-carved cameo and hand forged bezel with curls of gold, alternating in directions and almost dancing around the centerpiece. Finished with a pin back and a bale, so it can be worn as a brooch or a pendant.
