Ever so elusive to find, pearl halo’d cameos are always the first to sell- we can never keep them in stock. What with their lustrous sheen, and this one, with her perfect carving, I am certain this rare conversion ring will not linger. Here crowned with her identifying Bandeau tiara- Hera quite enjoys her depicted moment. This particular rendering shows her with a perked nose and sharp crown- her bun beautifully plaited. Ever so slightly warm in tone, her pearls just glow, each one entirely original to the jewel. Together, they forms her throne, as she is shown as an inversed silhouette against an onyx ground.
Materials- 14ct, onyx cameo, pearl
Age/Origin: Victorian, American
Condition: Excellent for her age. As previously mentioned, she is a conversion ring, and has been beautifully converted. Likely originally a brooch.
