Antique 800 Silver & 14k Gold Cameo Pend/Brooch and Chain
A beautiful hand crafted natural shell cameo in excellent condition. Would make a wonderful gift for a friend or for yourself. The hand etched profile of a lady whose hair is adorned with flowers sits perfectly within an 800 silver frame accented by a thin 14k gold rope. Included is an 18k gold fill 18.5" inch chain. Absolutely NO cracks or chips to the cameo and NO dents or cracks to the metal work. The back of the shell is etched with the cursive initials WN or WU. A chain bail to the top allows for the cameo to be worn as a necklace and the latch and pin are secure for use as a brooch. It is the perfect weight to be worn on a sweater, coat, as a collar accent or even on a hat or as a bride's something old in her bouquet.

Shell stimulates intuition, sensitivity, imagination and adaptability. It helps to enhance mental clarity and provides insight into decision-making. Shell promotes cooperation between the self and others, as well as within the self. It provides cohesive energy for groups.
Silver assists in increasing perception and helps to regulate emotional and intuitive energies. It provides for a very strong connection between the physical and astral bodies. It can be used as a mirror to the soul, one to stimulate seeing oneself from outside of the body. When used with gemstones, silver is able to both attract and retain those qualities which are emitted by the stone. The silver provides a steadying influence. It performs a balancing act by drawing negativity from the body while transferring the positive energies of other minerals.
Silver is known to enhance the powers of the moon and is excellent for use in energizing other stones during the full and new moons.
