Victorian shell cameo and gold pendent earrings circa 1890. Comprising a pair of carved, oval shell cameos, each depicting a classical female profile, one facing right; the other, facing left, within conforming gold bezels decorated by roped gold terminating on a knot with swinging tassels, 12 and 14-karat yellow gold. Very pristine condition consistent with age and wear. What is it we like about them? First of all, the cameos are facing each other, and depending on your mood, you can wear them that way or the reverse. Furthermore, because these are antique cameos, the carvings themselves are loaded with elegant and refined details, very well-proportioned countenances, genteel in appearance. Additionally, the articulated tassels add charm and whimsy. Celebrate Yourself and Your discriminating good taste by acquiring these cameo earrings as Your very own Luxury treat to Yourself, today!
