Victorian Opal, Turquoise and Diamond Cameo Pendant/Brooch
ABOUT THIS JEWELRY
Angelic is the word! Based on the famous pair of puti by Raffaello Santi (1483-1520), a.k.a. Raphael, the talented lapidary artist responsible for this work of wearable art chose a unique and novel canvas--a shimmering, iridescent opal! The divine duo is hand carved and brought into subtle relief against a radiant dark blue sky with billowy white clouds, all ornately framed in warmly burnished rosy-yellow gold adorned with turquoise-petaled flowers, centered with twinkling rose-cut diamonds. A delightfully dreamy and unique collectible, circa 1890-1900. Chain measures 18 inches. Bonus! *This remarkable Jazz Age jewel is from the estate of a renowned A-list Hollywood actor (only to be revealed upon purchase ;).
