Delicate seed pearl strand necklace with carved angel skin coral cameo circa early-mid 19th century. The tiny gold spring ring clasp may not be original to this piece.
The cameo depicts a young woman, carved with exquisite details. Set into a gold frame with a mother of pearl backing.
+++ Measurements +++
Seed pearl strand is approx 15.5" total wearable length with a 1.5" drop. Cameo is approx .75" tall.
+++ Condition +++
Good condition overall with minor wear commensurate with age:

It is a delicate piece, but it is wearable with care.
