18k Victorian Shell Cameo Pendant/Brooch
Beautiful in every way! This hand etched shell cameo is the perfect gift or that "something old" for a bride on her special day. An 18k gold frame holds a square cameo of a beautiful lady with her hair pulled back and adorned with a beads and flowers. The execution and detail are very fine with NO cracks or chips. There are rubbed artisan initials on the back of the shell and the Japanese gold mark of K18. The pin and latch are in proper working order with only some mild bending to pin (please see photos.) There is a chain loop that folds down for when cameo is worn as a broch. The loop allows for a 4mm chain to slide through. Chain shown is NOT included. A true piece of history for your collection.
