This special and fine cameo brooch or pin is set in 14K yellow gold. The original C-clasp is present on the back, which dates the brooch to the Victorian period of the 19th century, around 1860-1880. It measures 1-3/4" high by 1-1/2" wide. The very finely carved shell cameo is set in a 14K yellow gold bezel, which is surrounded by exquisite gray seed pearls, further surrounded by a delicate narrow, textured gold border. The entire expanse of the back is 14K yellow gold. There are no marks, but I have tested the gold and guarantee that it is 14K. It is possible that the beautiful image of the woman in profile with a profusion of flowers intertwined with her curls is Proserpine. She is the ancient Roman goddess whose story is the basis of a myth of spring. The condition is excellent, no damage to the cameo, no missing pearls, no damage to the gold.
