Vintage Italian Cameo Teardrop 14K Brooch Pin Pendant Lady With Pearls
In a sea of antique and vintage cameos, this beautiful, signed hand teardrop carved shell cameo brooch pendant gracefully stands out!
Beauty and elegance meet in this estate teardrop or pear-shaped 14k yellow gold shell cameo brooch pin pendant. Featuring a young lady with a slightly upturned slim nose, the soft curls of her hair are finished with a flower and band. At her neck is a carved bead or pearl necklace and a flower to her left shoulder.
The lower left-hand segment of the cameo appears to bear the carved initials G.B.
With a twisted gold ribbon border, this pendant/pin measures 32mm (1-1/4 inch) high from the pendant point to the base, and 25mm (1 inch) wide.
This vintage beauty can be worn as a brooch pin or grace your neck on a chain with its fold away bail.
In excellent pre-owned condition, with no cracks or chips in the shell. Stamped 14K, with a second rectangular hallmark lozenge that bears no discernible markings but that I've observed elsewhere with an Italy mark.
