A timeless 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 an image in fine detail with a contrasting background. This meticulously carved cameo is mounted in a 9ct yellow gold setting featuring a single twist rope border. On the reverse of this cameo is fitted a hinged bail, allowing it to be also worn as a pendant.
