Antique Victorian Carved Shell Aurora Roman Goddess of the Dawn Cameo Brooch
This is an exquisitely hand carved Victorian Shell Cameo Brooch. This gorgeous antique piece depicts the Roman Goddess Aurora on her chariot bringing forth the dawn. The detailing is absolutely beautiful, while there are a couple of places that have a bit of blurring due to age for the most part the lines of this brooch are very clear and defined. There are numbers marked on the brooch pin on the back but im unable to make it out completely. It did not test as sterling and when using the 10k it eventually dissolved the line. I also used the 22k and it did turn the line a yellowish green. This indicates that there is palladuim present, in the Victorian era palladuim was used as filler for precious metals as it is a harder more dense material so there is a possibility that this method was used in making this piece.

As my town is small and my personal trusted jeweler is out of town on Holiday ive been unable to take it in for fire her in depth testing. This is a fantastic piece of wearable history. This gorgeous Roman Mythological brooch would make a stunning one of a kind gift for some one special. It will come gift boxed and ready to wear or gift.
