Lovely Antique 10k Gold Hand Carved Classical Cameo Pin Brooch
Regular price $360.00
Presented is a lovely antique 10K gold and carved shell cameo pin. The shell is very nicely carved with a profile of a beautiful young woman in classical attire. This piece was made between 1910 through the 1930s. The gold frame was made in the United States and the carved cameo portion was certainly done in Italy. The cameo is bezel set in a 10K gold frame with elegant engraving around the edges. The cameo is marked 10K on the clasp and on the back of the frame. We have tested the cameo with nitric acid and guarantee it to be 10K gold. The condition is excellent. There are no chips, no cracks, no splits, no breaks, and no repairs. The cameo measures 1 1/2 inches by 1 7/8 inches.
The weight is 11.8 grams.
