Antique Jewelry, Estate Jewelry. Circa 1880s, 18k, France. This hardstone cameo pendant features exquisite carving. The details are lovely, capturing the soft curls of the ladies tresses and the flowing ruffles in her dress. Superbly fabricated using three different colors of 18k gold, it will turn heads today as readily as it did 140 years ago in Paris! Excellent condition.

Note: Chain shown is a separate item.

Stone Details: Fine cameo carving is all about detail and fluidity. The hair and ribbons appear to float, the cheek, nose and lips are soft and the eyes expressive -- details. . .

Remarks from Lawrence Jeffrey: "I have a weakness for stone cameos. There is a strength to them that is very attractive. They were only used in better jewelry and are not commonly made today. Carving them is almost a lost art. I believe that they celebrate both the power and femininity of women."
