Vintage 9ct Gold and Shell Cameo Pendant Brooch by OBLO
 
The vintage 9ct yellow gold cameo brooch / pendant is set with an oval (25.0mm x 18.5mm) very well carved shell cameo of an early 20th Century lady looking right. The cameo is claw-set into a surrounding fancy gold surround with embossed flower embellishment. The brooch has a hinged ring bale, enabling it to be worn alternatively as a pendant. The brooch has a safety chain attached to the frame. The shell carving is probably Italian. The brooch is marked “9CT; OBLO”.
 
OBLO is a name found on some jewellery made in South Africa in the second half of the 20th Century. It appears to be a family-owned jewellery maker which also operates in Australia.
