This antique Etruscan Hardstone Cameo pendant is a pristine example of Victorian Jewelry at its finest. Weighing 22.6g and measuring 7cm long and 3.8cm wide, this solid 14k yellow gold custom carved female profile hardstone Victorian Antique Cameo makes an impressive Victorian Necklace pendant. Measuring 2.8cm long and 2.2cm wide, this custom two-tone colored cameo is carved from 'mottled tan and antique cream' sardonyx depicting the side profile of a young maiden, head slightly tilted in a typical coy Princes Diana pose. Exhibiting strong Italian features, modeled by a noble Venetian debutante with braided locks, this 'coming-out' ensemble was perhaps a parental gift for a much loved Mother from a grateful daughter who is soon to flee the nest or hit the canals! Constructed in the form of a shield, not entirely unlike that of the FCI logo, this familiar shape is reminiscent of the favored shape used outside public drinking houses in Europe over a century ago. Laced with finitely sophisticated Etruscan Revival motif, this one of a kind Victorian Necklace is rear fitted with a locket-holder in which to display an early photograph or miniature, or even a precious lock of hair with which to identify DNA in the event of a missing person. Kidding of course! The hollow horizontal dumb-bell supported by a significantly sized, beaded paisley scrolled upper accentuating finial, is in turn suspended from a sizable tapering Etruscan trimmed bale, sufficient to house up to a 6mm wide chain. Gentle wear has worn the century old 18k gold wash off several areas of the more rosey colored gold beneath, giving that characteristic, unique Victorian almost undetectable two-tone gold appearance, more noticeable on the dumb-bells and rear bezel of this rare and highly sought after Antique Necklace.
