A wonderful antique cameo carving in pink conch shell. This pendant and chain is a treasure for the cameo jewelry lover!
The cameo is finely carved in angel skin coral and set in buttery 10k gold. It comes with 14k gold chain so you can wear it immediately!
The cameo carving is white against the pale pink background of the conch shell. The elongated octagon setting measures 1" X 3/4" and has ornate etchings at the border. It is marked 10k for gold purity at the back and has been safely test to be so. The cameo is oval and measures 3/4" X 1/2" it is finely carved. We see no damage to the carving on the front. The back of the cameo shows a natural vein (not a hairline) which can not be seen through the front. This is vein is inside the shell.
We acquired this lovely piece on a 14k Gold rope chain. It was most likely added to piece at a later date. It has an older barrel clasp. The chain measures 19" in length and has a 2mm width. It is sturdy for a finer chain. The total weight of the cameo AND the chain are 7.1 grams.
This is a lovely antique cameo pendant and chain. This would also be a great piece for the bride as wedding gift or to wear on her special day. We will be adding a few more estate cameo this week check back.
