A beautifully carved Victorian era banded agate cameo pendant or brooch, crafted in 14K yellow gold. The cameo is of the profile of a woman with berries and vines added to her hair. The details are crisp and very well done.
The pendant itself measures 2.5 inches long (including the bail) by 1.2 inches wide, with a pin in the back so that it can be worn two ways. The top of the bail is marked “14K” for gold purity.
