Victorian Shell and Diamond Cameo Brooch/Pendant

Sardinian conch carved in exquisite detail a classical female head in profile.  It is worthwhile pausing to note the beautiful wheat sheaf hair and shoulder ornaments, the undulating hair and curls as if a gentle breeze were blowing on them even as you look, the delicate nose, the well proportioned neck - adorned with a real gold and 0.05 carat diamond necklace, framed within a gold laurel leaf garland, mounted in 14-karat yellow gold sporting a beautiful patina, the kind that only age and time can develop.  Very pristine with a hinged bail on the back to facilitate wearing this jewel as a pendant.  Antique Victorian shell and diamond cameo brooch circa 1900.
