Item Description

A beautiful and classic slightly iridescent Mother of Pearl cameo carving in the shape of a woman's head and neckline. This specific material has been coming into style at the moment, as we've seen a few designers incorporating them into their winter clothing lines. The stone itself has a lovely soft cream color with a notable chatoyant effect that can be seen when rotated in the light. The piece is completely hand carved. This is a wonderful piece of gem art and would look beautiful set into jewelry, or in a box in your personal collection.
