You will instantly be charmed by this antique 9ct Gold cameo brooch. With a beautiful classical-style lady's portrait, this Victorian brooch will add a touch of the ancient world to your favourite blazer or chunky knit.
This style of brooch was widely popular in the Victorian period, as the interest for archaeological revival jewellery blossomed! The soft rosy sheen of the 9ct Gold has naturally accrued from age, and it compliments the blush and white tones of the cameo shell perfectly.

VERY GOOD: This antique 9ct Gold cameo brooch is in fantastic condition. The cameo shell has little to no signs of wear, and it's secure within the Gold bezel settings. The 9ct Gold itself has small signs of wear to the back, and the pin feels secure itself but can be easily manoeuvred out of its setting. These two age-related signs of wear are nothing to worry about, as it does not detract from both the beauty and wearability of the brooch. We do, however, recommend wearing this brooch with thicker fabrics like woolly knits and blazers just so it stays exactly where she should.
