Vintage 14K Gold Giovanni APA Hand Carved Shell Cameo Diamond Brooch/Pendant, Classic Relief Carving, Lady's Bust W/ Diamond Necklace, 1.25"

$552.50 $650.00

A finely hand-carved Italian heart cameo set in pure 14k yellow gold. Features a classic relief shell carving of a girlish bust with floral embellishments and a gold diamond necklace set around her neck. The cameo is bezel set in a yellow gold heart-shaped frame and has a beautiful ribbon trim. The back of the setting holds a horizontal safety pin with a modern style latch and thin gold necklace gold bail hinged connected at the top-center of the heart. Can be worn with up to a 3mm chain.

This is such a sweet vintage cameo and has remained in excellent condition. There is one notable dent on the gold setting at the hearts bottom point, and the gold safety pin is slightly warped, but otherwise the cameo shows minimal signs of wear or discoloration. Made in Napoli, Italy and hallmarked 'APA,(star), 95, NA, 585' on the back for authenticity.
