We are in awe at the craftsmanship of this Victorian 15ct Gold Cameo bracelet! Composed of nine different Cameo Shell portraits connected by 15ct Gold links, we have never seen anything quite like this.

Cameo Shell jewellery was first popularised by Queen Victoria, and thereafter was predominantly worn by women who marvelled at the beauty of these hand carvings. This charming antique bracelet features wispy portraits of dancing women and fairies, lending her a uniquely ethereal quality! 

Item Details:

MEASUREMENTS: 6 & 1/2" or 16.5cm long.
Cameo portraits are 20.5mm tall x 15.5mm wide.

HALLMARKS: "15" stamped on tongue, tested as solid 15ct Gold (with some 9ct Gold).

Condition:

VERY GOOD. This bracelet is in very good condition for its age. All the portraits are securely set in their bezel settings, ensuring you can wear the bracelet with confidence. There is some light wear to the bezel settings, but this is commensurate with her age. The cameo portraits themselves are in excellent condition! Most of the bracelet is solid 15ct Gold, with some of the jump-rings having been replaced with 9ct Gold over the years. All her chain sections are secure and the clasp securely fastens for added peace of mind. Overall, she is just gorgeous!
