An elegant Edwardian cameo brooch. This beautiful cameo has been carved from a single Cornelian shell. These shells have a white marble like layer and a darker layer, typically brown. Allowing a master carver to create this image of a beautiful lady in fine detail with a contrasting background. On the back of the cameo a natural discrepancy can be seen and also felt, which authenticates this cornelian shell. This precisely carved cameo is mounted in a rich 15ct yellow gold setting featuring a double row of twisted ropes. This exceptional cameo can be worn as a pendant as well as a brooch.
