Incredible high relief carved cameo bracelet circa 19th century. The cameos are stunning on this piece! And the goldwork is so beautifully detailed as well.
I believe this is a depiction of the Three Graces, three goddesses in Greek mythology (Euphrosyne, Aglaia, and Thalia), in whom beauty was deified.
The Three Graces are a common motif in cameo jewelry, but they are usually depicted all on one cameo in full body. This is a very unusual depiction if it is in fact the Three Graces, and it is quite beautiful!
Unmarked but tests as at least 14k gold.
