With a loose tendril or ringlet tumbling onto her neck. The cameo has a pale pinkish hue background with the carving in white. The cameo is set in a Whitby jet surround which perfectly complements the shell. This is a great example of Victorian era cameo jewellery. No doubt the unmounted cameo was brought back the UK from Italy possibly as a Grand Tour and then mounted in the quintessentially English material, Whitby jet.A quality item and a very wearable piece. It is in excellent condition with just a couple of very minor nicks to the rim of the jet mount.
