Edwardian, 1901 to 1920s
Truly one of the prettiest cameo necklaces I have seen. Set in yellow gold, framed with twisted ribbons of gold and seed pearls with Diamonds at the cardinal points. The pearls frame each of the Diamond settings and are likely natural pearls, not cultured. Estimated to date from the Edwardian Era.
The lovely figure's hair is adorned with flowers, perhaps a reference to the goddess Flora. Delicate figure and wonderful details with hair tendrils framing the forehead. An anchor adorns her left shoulder, a symbol of Hope. Cameo is hand carved from pink shell, a soft pink background for the cream colored figure.
Each Diamond is brilliant cut and they are fiery. Approximately 2.2mm in diameter each, estimated total carat for all four is 0.12 cts.
Pendant measures 1 7/16" long including bail and 15/16" at the widest. Made of 10k Yellow Gold, although not marked. Carefully tested.
Chain not included, shown for illustration only.
In excellent condition, pendant dates from the 1910's.
This information is intended to help you understand our sizing methods.
Please note many small measurements are in millimeters. It is a Jewelry Industry standard for accuracy.

We measure bracelets based on their wearable length, not the actual length. We do this because chunky bracelets will have a smaller wearable length than the actual length as the thickness of the bracelet reduces the internal measurement. If at any time you would like the actual length and is not in the description, please feel free to contact us.
