VINTAGE 18K GOLD ART DECO CARVED CAMEO BROOCH PENDANT~HIDDEN BAIL~HEAVY 6 GR Search
If you are a collector of exceptional cameo jewelry, created by master carvers with very deft fingers, please take a look at this one. I'm sure you will agree that she's "above average" in quality of carving...AND in addition--the frame is solid 18k gold (probably European-made, as it is hallmarked 750) and so beautiful in its simplicity!
This cameo is is expertly hand-carved from shell. The detail is exquisite--in the flower at her shoulder, and her up-do hairstyle, and even the carved drop earring she wears! You can tell it is an older cameo, as the woman has the Roman nose and more pointed chin seen in late 1800s - early 1900s carved cameos. The details are crisp and clear.
There is some color variation on the underside of the shell--it is natural to the shell, and is NOTdamage to the cameo.
The cameo is set in a heavy 18k yellow gold bezel frame, with a hand-cut scalloped border. This is not filigree, and it's NOT lightweight. It's a good solid frame, with a beautiful shape!
This piece can be worn as a brooch or a pendant. I've shown it on a chain in the photos. THE CHAIN IS NOT INCLUDED IN THIS sale. The bail folds down when not in use as a pendant.
This cameo measures 1.25" (not including the bail) by 1" side to side. It is hallmarked 750 for 18K gold. The cameo weighs a hefty 6 grams, with a good portion of that being in the gold frame. It is in excellent vintage condition.
