About

This authentic Victorian (circa 1890) shell cameo pendant/brooch is crafted in 14K rose gold, weighs approx. 24 grams and measures 2. 1/2" long (inclusive of bale) and 1.1/2" wide. Depicting the elaborately detailed and masterfully carved portrait of a Roman goddess or a Victorian lady with a laurel wreath in her hair, placed on a color -contrasting oval-cut carnelian, the aesthetically enchanting portrait is placed within an ovular rose gold frame, surrounded by a highly ornate perimeter. The latter is embellished with Etruscan style granulation technique and adorned with four natural seed pearls mounted within ornately chiseled, foil-backed settings. The alluring organic gems mounted on the vertical extremities of this unique pendant/brooch are positioned between gracefully scrolled profiles, augmenting the aesthetic beauty of the cameo frame. This versatile antique piece of jewelry features on reverse a hinged pin and a well designed, folding bale to support a chain and remains in excellent condition..

Antique Victorian cameos enable us to glance into the past and to capture the image of those who lived long before us. The poised and elegant Victorian lady who graces this antique cameo pendant/brooch is reminiscent of the affluent Victorian era and the beauty of the jewelry which, in the absence of our highly developed, modern techniques, was masterfully designed and immaculately handcrafted during that era.

Weight is approx 24 grams

Measurements: 2.1/2" x 1.1/2"
