Victorian 1850s Hard Stone Cameo Pearl Gold Pendant

Victorian 1850s hard stone pearls and 18-karat gold cameo pendant.  Very pristine.  The crisp and highly detailed sardonyx carving depicts the profile of a woman's head facing right, with cascading curls and pendent earrings, within a thin border of corded gold set, apart and within, a wider beveled frame decorated at the cardinal points by in-relief foliar motifs accented with half pearls, four similar pearls bezel-set mid point in between at equal intervals, suspended from a detachable bail.  Think, how lovely it is to possess something so creamy and lovely to look at. Sardonyx is also known as one of the birthstones for the month of August.
