Victorian 14k Gold Carved Shell Cameo Pin Pendant Intricate Cut Out Maiden

$ 325.00

Antique Victorian 14k Gold Cut Out Carved Shell Cameo Pendant Pin Brooch Combination. A beautiful carved shell cameo of a beautiful lady with three large cabbage roses in her up doo hair style. So very graceful and elegant. The art of carving Cameo's takes a very steady hand in the first place but this one has also been intricately cut out to remove the background of the shell. The remaining effect is this beautiful silhouette of a cameo without a traditional frame.

The beautifully cut out shell has been carefully and securely mounted to a 14k yellow gold pin back with a pendant bail as well. It can now be worn as a pin or hung on a chain. The shell cameo is much older than the cut out cameo based on the style of the bail and clasp. None the less it is a very nice piece of antique jewelry now. The gold is not marked but has tested to be at least 14k gold. Money back guarantee.

The cameo pendant / brooch measures 1 5/8" high by 1 1/8" wide. Weighs 9.3 grams. The cameo and the gold mount are both in excellent condition. Shell has no chips or cracks. Gold clasp is working and mount is secure. A beautiful antique substantial cameo!
