Thank you for taking the time to at this absolutely gorgeous and very rare early 20th century antique Victorian circa 1900 solid 18k rose gold red and white hardstone cameo matching ear ring and brooch/pendant set. First of all the brooch weighs 14 grams and measures 2 inches from top to bottom including the bail and it measures 1 1/2 inches across. So carefully and masterfully made these cameo's are perfectly bezel set. This gorgeous red and white hardstone cameo of the lady facing to the right , she has beautiful facial features a necklace and immaculate hair. On the top it has a large multidirectional swivel bail that will hold up to a 5 mm chain and this bail tucks under the pin when not being worn , the pin itself is thick and sturdy with a double strength closure where the pin tucks under very securely.
On the back on the bottom is evidence of a small piece that most likely held another piece dangling from the bottom. Now the ear ring pair weighs 7.9 grams and each of the cameo portions measure one 1/8 inch from top to bottom but with the wires that have been added they measure 1 5/8 inch top to bottom when being worn. Like the brooch the red and white hardstone cameo's show no signs of wear and they are exact duplicate of the same lady with the necklace in the beautiful hair , now please look closely as each of the three cameo's sits in a openwork filigree halo with either floral designe or fleur-de-lis designs set around it.
The total weight of all three pieces is 21.8 grams. This item will be carefully packaged a. Having owned and seen thousands of antique cameos I find this matching brooch and earring set to be truly exquisite , extremely beautiful and in excellent condition ready to be worn and admired and added to a collection.
