Excellent condition, it is a wonderful example of a Victorian brooch. It is hand carved and well made.

The detail is exquisite. The cameo is surrounded with tiny seed pearls. The carving is high relief. It carved from deep sea shell.

Folklore says that cameos' have a mystic capacity to attract health and good fortune.

Unlike other cameos, this one has a finely detailed face and you can see that she beautiful. The little brown spot on the front is the color of the shell, not a flaw.

This pin is stamped 10K on the fully functioning clasp. However, I believe that the rest of the pin is likely 9K. This is only noticeable upon close inspection. Also, it may have had a loop to make it into a pendant. That loop is missing.

Shipped by first class mail.
