Italian Carved Shell Cameo 10k setting Intricate carving of Flora. Lovely profile of Goddess Flora, in all her natural beauty, with flowers in her hair, lovely long tendril, and bouquet of flowers on her shoulder. If you stare at her profile for more than a minute, I swear, an enigmatic subtle smile appears to grace her lips and her eyes seem to smile a bit too. Of course it is because the Italian carver was such a master and knew just how to make the material suggest the amusement in the goddess's countenance. And to make that suggestion in such a small carving is absolutely stunning.This is one of the prettiest cameos I've seen. You'll love the look of her hair, the flowers and all the other details in this antique brooch. It has a pin and clasp so you can wear it as a brooch. This would be an awesome gift for a bride or Maid of honor --- or better yet Valentine's Day seems to come up and you will have planned ahead; what a classic piece of jewelry for your sweetie.
The setting quite lovely and the gold lacy decorative trim really compliments the piece. You will absolutely love it!
