Antique Sardonyx Shell Cameo Of Aurora, Goddess Of Dawn In Gold Frame 1800s Nr For Sale
Antique Sardonyx Shell Cameo of Aurora, Goddess of Dawn in Gold Frame 1800s NR
Old and Rare Cameo!!!
This intricately carved shell cameo depicting Aurora, the Roman goddess of dawn in her chariot is probably from the 19th century. My jeweler believes the frame to be gold plated, but he is not sure whether the gold plating is 10K, 14K, or 18K since there are absolutely hallmarks. We are not sure, but the chain might have been attached to a bar that went through the buttonhole of a man's waistcoat. The C clasp appears to be original, but the jeweler is certain the pin is not original and was a repair. As you can see from the third photo, absolutely NO cracks or stress fractures are present.
The Sardonyx shell cameo measures 44mm x 35mm while the overall piece measures 53mm x 45mm. The last photo shows the scale of the piece.
Who will be the lucky winner of my oldest cameo?

Jewelry and formal wear are two of my many passions. As with all my passions, I tend to overdo! As I was looking through my vast jewelry collection, I realized I had enough jewelry to open my own jewelry store. Why not have a 'store' on ?
In the process of collecting all the jewelry, I have learned quite a bit. Sharing what I have learned with interested buyers is something that makes me smile. Thanks for letting me have my fun! Also, I am delighted to hear from anyone who can further my jewelry education.
Over the years, I have been collecting all types of jewelry. My taste in jewelry varies widely. Vintage jewelry to modern designs are equally appealing. The expense associated with the jewelry varies just as widely. In any given day, I may be wearing fashion jewelry along side high-end fine jewelry. Alas, I have collected too much, yet, I still want more. Since finding , I now have a means of selling jewelry I no longer wear to buy new jewelry that I simply must have! Can anyone relate?
Four years ago, I had gastric bypass surgery. Since then, I have lost 125 pounds! Every pound is still gone! However, one bad outcome has resulted from the surgery. I went a little overboard buying new clothes and shoes. Did I say a little? Four closets of clothes is a 'little' overboard, don't you think? It is time to let go of some of them, primarily, the 'dress-up' clothes.
