Presented is a wonderful carved hardstone cameo pin or pendant, in 14 karat gold. This is a Victorian piece, likely made in America.The cameo is beautifully carved, depicting a pretty young woman with her curly hair done up. The cameo is nicely detailed and textured, down to the woman's jewelry and the decorations in her hair. The 14 karat gold frame is done in a fabulous Etruscan Revival style, with ornate applied wirework and beadwork, very finely and intricately done. The brooch has a modern rollover style safety clasp, which is a replacement, as well as a loop/bail at the top so it can be worn as either a pin or a pendant. This piece is not stamped or hallmarked, but we have tested it with nitric acid and guarantee it to be at least 14 karat gold. This piece is in excellent condition. The applied wirework and beadwork is all intact and crisp.
The carving is in great shape, with no chips, no cracks, no breaks, and no repairs. The clasp is a modern replacement, and it functions well and closes securely. This piece measures about 1 1/2 by 1 1/4 inches. This piece weighs 11.2 grams. Powered by SixBit's eCommerce Solution.
