Antique Victorian 10k Gold Pearls Carved Shell Cameo Pendant
Antique late Victorian to early Art Deco 10K yellow gold natural carved shell cameo pendant with its original round hinged antique bale for a necklace. This is an early one that is very intricately and beautifully carved and has pearls applied to the handmade 10K gold frame. It is marked 10K on the bale and is thoroughly jeweler tested and guaranteed to be solid 10K yellow gold. It is from an estate and all parts are original. It has a very, very tiny 1/4mm cut on the the sides of one pearl that is not eye obvious. Must look for it with a loupe. Probably from the removal of a pin rod many years ago. Other than this it is excellent. The lady portrait is exquisitely carved with fine crisp details and good, strong depth. Amid her hair is an unusual carved cap. Size is just about 1 1/2″ tall north to south with the bale by 7/8″ wide across. Weight is 4.8 grams. This is a gorgeous antique Victorian gold cameo pendant for your collection.
