About

Victorian Shell and Diamond Cameo Brooch Pendant

Sardinian conch carved in exquisite detail as a classical female head in profile. It is worthwhile pausing to note the beautiful wheat sheaf hair and shoulder ornaments, the undulating hair and curls as if a gentle breeze were blowing on them even as you look, the delicate nose, the well proportioned neck - adorned with a real gold and 0.05 carat diamond necklace, framed within a gold laurel leaf garland, mounted in 14-karat yellow gold sporting a beautiful patina, the kind that only age and time can develop. Very pristine with a hinged bail on the back to facilitate wearing this jewel as a pendant. Antique Victorian shell and diamond cameo brooch circa 1900.
DIMENSIONS: 2 3/8" vertical width and 1 3/4" horizontal width.
