More than Museum Quality coral cameo necklace/depicting a wonderful cherub. Have you ever seen a sweetest face? So round and soft that the only thing you would do is kissing it a lot! Cherubs and angels were very popular in the Victorian Era, they were worn as jewels and were symbols of love. Look how the carver used the stone to evidence his wonderful face, everything is so realistic. This is a piece who really can be displayed in a museum but also it is so wearable! The sweetness of his face is amazing, the carving is more than superb as only the great masters carvers of the past with their skill were able to carve. This is one of most beautiful piece I have ever seen, the pictures speak by themselves. Note that the This is another masterly carved cameo. A very desirable collectors piece, rare and museum quality cameo.
