Victorian Hardstone Cameo Pendant/Brooch and Earrings Set
ABOUT THIS JEWELRY
In addition to its striking beauty, you will never feel better protected whilst escorted by this daunting triumvirate of Roman Centurions, each artfully and meticulously hand carved in high relief against translucent carnelian backgrounds. The stern griffin-helmeted and Medusa-shielded general centers a consummate, sizable Victorian pendant/brooch elegantly hand fabricated in 18K rose gold, studded with glinting rose-cut diamonds and encircled by lustrous natural pearls. The matching earrings feature an opposed pair of dutiful soldiers. Pristine, superb, and striking museum-worthy showstoppers. Circa 1850. The pendant/brooch measures 3 1/2 by 1 11/16 inches; the earrings measure 2 1/2 inches by 1 inch.
