Presented is a very nice 14K white gold and carved sardonyx cameo stickpin.  The
cameo  is carved from a green and white sardonyx stone and depicts a woman with
a large, soft  bun of hair at the base of her neck.  The cameo is very nicely
set in a heavy, engraved white  gold bezel setting.  The stickpin comes with a
cap for greater security when worn.

The stickpin is marked on the shaft with 14K.  We have tested it with nitric
acid and guarantee it to be 14K gold.

The condition is excellent.  The cameo is carved in such a way that the area
in front of her eye and cheek is carved at a lower depth, to represent her nose
and to give greater depth to  the relief carving.  This is intentional, and was
a common technique used in carving a nose in cameos.  The tip of her nose and
the top of her right shoulder both have had a small chip.  There are no breaks,
no cracks, no splits, no dents, no other chips and no repairs.

The stickpin measures 2 1/2 inches.

The weight is 2.6 grams.
