Story

The popularity of cameos reached a high pitched fervor during the mid to later 1800s and remained popular through the early 20th century.

Combining meticulous craft and with the motif of cherubs or angel heads, this antique demi-parure of pendant with chain and earrings dates to circa 1920.

Carved from the pastel hues of the Strombus Giga shell, a large conch sometimes referred to as a queen conch, is found in the waters of the Caribbean and Bahamas.

Chubby and cherubic angel heads are set deep within a carved shell. These are entirely hand carved to resemble scallop shells and not part of the original conch’s structure. Above each head heavy with curling locks of hair, and arranged in an arch is a garland of graduated flowers.

Artfully, artisans chose their carving carefully, allowing the white portion shell for the background with the pinks tones for the high points of the designs.

Dangling, the earrings use the same motif but a single flower bloom serves as the top surmount. In 14k gold, the pendant has a large fitting to hold the 10k gold chain or can be removed and worn as a brooch. The earrings have later additions of 10k gold post fittings.

A fancy 20.5 inch gold chain comes with the set.
