Antique Cameo Pendant Brooch Combo with Diamonds in 10K Yellow Gold
An elegant Antique Cameo that is both a Pendant and a Brooch, set in a 10K Yellow Gold with Diamonds. We were able to find an advertisement for these style of necklaces in the A.C.B Jewelers Wholesale Catalog from 1916. The setting is comprised of 2 stylish ovals in gold, with 4 Single Cut Diamonds, that range in size from about 0.03 to 0.04 carat each, with clarity estimated at VS2. This makes a total estimated carat weight of 0.15 carat (above 1/10th and below one quarter carat).
When we found this cameo, it originally had seed pearls instead of diamonds and was missing two of them. We replaced the seed pearls with diamonds, which is also period correct for these pendants, assuring this lovely, unmistakably antique piece, will be enjoyed for years to come. The cameo appears to be made out of shell. We did not want risk marring the cameo, by performing chemical tests, to see what material the cameo is made from. The front of the cameo is mostly cream and the back of the cameo has a subtle, pink shade. The gold oval is slightly out of round, see the 1st photo. This would make a wonderful gift.
