  • This is a coral cameo necklace of surpassing beauty. A very rare finding , the subject of this cameo necklace is Goddess Flora. The fine chain is enhanced by coral beads. The gold is finely worked around each cameo. Marked on the back central cameo as 14 K and makers mark. Each cameo is masterly carved, all details are so well rendered, look at the pictures so you can see each small detail. I have no other words to describe it.  Looks wonderful when worn (see picture where I wear it)This is an object of desire for many collectors and a so wearable piece! A  more than desirable cameo necklace for any collector.
