Antique Vintage Shell Cameo Psyche1850's Pin Brooch 10kt Yellow Gold Gv4685:
Stunning antique carved shell Cameo depicting Goddess PsycheHere is a cameo portrait of Psyche identified by the small pair of butterfly wings on the goddess's shoulder. This is the symbolism often used to indicate the Goddess Psyche. But regardless of who it portrays, the cameo is lovely -- beautifully carved with a classic setting. Know that if you choose a cameo depicting a figure from mythology, it is probably older than other portraits. We do know that the earlier cameos often depicted Greek or Roman gods and goddesses. It was later on that portraits of fashionable people of the day or just pretty faces became subjects of these compelling shell portraits.
A cameo of Psyche would make a very appropriate gift for psychology majors, doctors or therapists -- or anyone interested in psychology. Or for that matter, anyone who loves classic jewelry or just loves objects go great beauty that also have historical relevance.
This cameo brooch can also be worn as a necklace. When looking at our photos, please note the back of the brooch. You will see that there is an extra loop so that this brooch can also be worn as a pendant.
You will be delighted when you see this cameo and spot Psyche's butterfly. I just fell in love with this cameo and I know you will
