This stunning carnelian shell cameo combination brooch and pendant in sterling silver with twisted gold wire accent is in fabulous vintage condition. More often, the cameos are portraits of ladies so it is a little more unusual to have a male carving. The actual portrait is excellent and is very skilful carving work. The man looks like he from the 1950s and is wearing a shirt and tie. This vintage piece has not been hallmarked but does test as sterling silver. The brooch fitting is working fine and the pendant bale can be hidden when the brooch is being worn. A great cameo piece to add to your collection of vintage jewellery.
