A very fine Hardstone & Diamond Cameo Pendant set in 15ct Yellow Gold & Silver, Circa 1880
An exquisitely hand carved Hardstone Cameo, depicting an "Elizabethan Lady" in full Court Dress, mounted on a Silver tipped 15 Carat Yellow Gold Pendant (tested) and surrounded by an Oval outline which has been Claw Set with numerous Old Cut Diamonds. This extraordinary Pendant is further embellished by a Single and Rose Cut set Diamond "Bow" Flourish, which in turn has been centrally set with a fine and larger Old Cut Diamond; all on its original Diamond set articulated bale.
The detail of the Hardstone, luminescent, fine hand carving is remarkable, particularly the Lady's Hair and Lace Work Ruff; an exceptional addition to anyone's Cameo collection.
English Mount, presumed Italian Cameo
Circa 1870 - 1880
