Delightful VTG 14k Gold Carved Hardstone Cameo Pin / Pendant
Regular price $936.00
Presented is a delightful modern 14K gold carved hardstone cameo pin or pendant. The relief cameo carving is of a beautiful young lady with quantities of abundant curls and an elegant diadem. The depth of the carving is very very good. The gold setting has elegant openwork done in round arches and peaked arches. The reverse has a hinged bale so that it can be worn as a pendant. The bale is sizeable and will accommodate most chains. This was likely made in Italy after World War II. The piece is marked 14K on the reverse. We have tested it with nitric acid and guarantee the frame to be 14K. The condition is excellent. The stone cameo is in fantastic shape, with no chips. There are no breaks, no cracks, no splits, no dents, no chips, no monograms, no monogram removals and no repairs. The cameo measures 1 1/2 inches by 1 1/8 inches.
The item weight is 12.3 grams.
