Vintage 14ct Gold and Shell Cameo Pendant Brooch
 
The vintage 14ct yellow gold cameo brooch / pendant is set with an oval (20.5mm x 15.5mm) shell cameo of a 20th Century lady looking right. The cameo is claw-set with a surrounding open-work frame with filigree decoration. The brooch has a hinged bale with a triple loop, enabling it to be worn alternatively as a pendant. The brooch has a further loop which may be used for a safety chain. The brooch has illegible, small, marks on the safety chain loop and it has been electronically scanned and tested to show that it is made of 14ct yellow gold. The brooch is probably Italian.
