Fine Rare Antique Shell Cameo Parure Set Brooch Bracelet Earrings Necklace Boxed
Fine Rare Antique Shell Cameo Parure Set Brooch Bracelet Earrings Necklace Boxed. Offered is a fine and rare antique cameo set in fitted box. This set features beautiful classical shell cameos set in solid yellow gold of various karats. The brooch depicts the wife Ariadne, wife of Bacchus in three color layers of the shell. She is carved in crisp detail with good relief wearing a draping cloak with ram’s head on shoulder and carrying the thyrsus. The frame is a rich 18k yellow gold with leaf embellishments. It measures 2.35″ by 2″ and weighs 17.5 grams. It is in beautiful wearable condition, but has a small chip at 11:00 underneath the frame, could have been incurred at setting as the frame protects the edge and hides the chip well. This brooch looks like ti had some dangles at one time, as there are indentations below the brooch in the box shaped like them, as the pendant has. The bracelet is a fine classical depiction of Hera, set in 13k solid yellow gold bangle style with a locking hinged clasp. The clasp snaps securely and is in excellent working order. The inside circumference of the bracelet is 6.50″ with a 1.57″ by 2 1/4 width and length. It would fit best on a wrist of 6 or smaller. The framed cameo on the front measures 1 5/8 long. This bracelet weighs 18.6 grams. It has no issues to report. There shows a small black spot on her upper lip, which I just removed- it was dirt. The earrings feature classical goddesses with top and bottom stations. They measure just over 2.5 from top of wire to bottom of dangle. They are in 13k solid gold and weigh a combined 6.5 grams. These earrings have lever back closures that unhook at the bead on the top of the earring, mechanisms work perfectly. No issues to report. The pendant necklace features a carved shell cameo of Bacchus facing left in high relief. The pendant is in 14k solid gold and has dangles. Pendant with dangles and bale measure 3.5. It has a modern 14k gold twisted rope chain with lobster type closure, not original to the piece. Combined weight of pendant and chain is 19.47 grams. The chain is 19 long. The case is fitted and lined with velvet and stain. It is embossed on the outside and has a stamp on the bottom that says the name of the jewelers and Montevideo. Lots of wear to box, hinges broken.
