Rare Antique Victorian Hardstone Agate Carnelian Cameo Gold Earrings Wires For Sale
Exquisite antique Victorian carved hardstone banded agate carnelian cameo earrings. The carving are not the "usual"...these are extremely well carved in great detail in high relief. In excellent condition...Although they are definitely a pair I believe one of the earrings is Goddess Psyche and the other is Flora. The number 179 is scratched on the back of both. The cameos are surrounded in a twisted gold mount with wires. They test strong for 10K...possibly higher. The earring on the left has a tiny space in the gold rope...looks as though it was made that way. On the back bottom of the frame on both earrings...there is a small gold soder mark...not sure if at one time there was somethingdangling.The cameo with the frame measures 3/4" x over 1/2" and hangs over 1 1/16" in the ear. These are beautiful!
