Gorgeous one of a kind jewelry design begins with a delicate hand carved bone Cameo framed in sterling silver. The natural stone designer jewelry piece continues with faceted garnets and creamy white moonstone. The handcrafted jewelry design was created exclusively for you by Rivendell Rock Jewelry.
This is an absolutely gorgeous hand carved bas relief cameo. Each feature is clear, crisp and masterfully created. The details in the roses, leaves, butterfly, the young woman's hair, lips, earrings, necklace are so fine and perfectly depicted. Her expression is soft, loving and gentle. The master artist who created this work of art created a woman with a personality, and that takes tremendous skill.
The necklace of beautiful faceted dark red garnets sparkles as the light bounces of each plane. Tiny rainbow moonstone gems add a touch of elegance.
The pendant is 2 inches by 1 1/2 inches with a 2 1/2 inch drop. The cameo is bordered with sterling silver with a sterling silver bezel.
The necklace is choker length at approximately 16 1/2 inches long. The 3 1/2 inch sterling silver extender chain gives you the choice to wear this at princess length. A sterling silver lobster clasp completes this luxurious design.
Victorian ladies discovered the cameo while traveling in Italy. It rapidly become a classic piece of jewelry associated with that and the Edwardian fashion periods.
We paired this wonderful cameo with garnets and moonstones, also much prized during these periods. We brought in the modern elements by using faceted gemstones, a clean, straightforward sterling silver extender chain and a sterling silver lobster clasp.
Garnets are January's birthstone and Moonstone is June's.
