Our hand-carved cornelian shell cameo pendants have incredible details! This orange and white carved cornelian shell pendant features a detailed carving of a woman with a fancy hairstyle and flowers in her hair. The pendant features sterling silver rope and chain details around the outside of the cameo setting. This cameo pendant was handmade in Italy and features the artist’s signature on the back of the cameo.
This pendant measures approximately 1.25″ long (including the bail) by approximately 0.7″ wide. Please note that the dime is not included but is shown to help you gauge the size of the jewelry.
This pendant has a large sterling silver bail (loop for chain) which allows the pendant to fit easily onto most thin to medium styles of chains or cords (not included) or allows the pendant to work well as a unique focal bead for your own design. The back of the pendant is stamped with “925” so you can rest assured all metal used in the pendant is genuine .925 sterling silver.
This pendant would make a great gift for anyone who loves shell cameos, detailed sterling silver jewelry, or handmade artisan jewelry. This brand new pendant comes with our original store tags and gift box, as well as a card from the artist which states the following:
Our factory produces original cameos, entirely engraved by hand by the best artists in Torre del Greco on shells, and mother of pearls of special quality. All this is guaranteed by Mr. Gennaro Borriello’s signature on the back of the cameo. We also guarantee our production of original agate stone jewelry.
