Antique Victorian Cameo Brooch Pin Or Pendant In 14k Gold With Sapphires Nr For Sale
Antique Victorian Cameo Brooch Pin or Pendant in 14K Gold with Sapphires NR
Wonderfully Detailed Cameo With Kite Sapphires!!!
This beautifully carved cameo is framed in a 14K gold frame that can pass as either yellow or white. The filigree frame is adorned with two 4mm x 2mm kite cut sapphires. The cameo can be worn as a brooch or on a chain by using the chain bale that folds behind the cameo if being worn as a brooch.
The Cornelian shell cameo measures 55mm x 44mm including the frame while the cameo itself measures 45mm x 33mm. The last photo shows the scale of the piece.
Both the brooch closure and the chain bale are in fine working condition. A hallmark of 14K is stamped on the closure of the pin. On the back of the cameo, there appears to be glue or a resin of some kind which is drying out. I have seen this on some other cameos similar to this one. I wonder if glue or resin was used during the time period this cameo was made. Otherwise, the perfect condition of the front of this cameo indicates it was a cherished and well-cared for piece of jewelry.
What an heirloom worthy piece!!!

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.
