This beautiful vintage cameo brooch is a real shell, hand carved in Italy, in an ornate gold-tone metal setting. It's signed Geno, a division of Richelieu. The carving is stylized and not very detailed, but it's still lovely, with a nice wave to the hair and the shell a pale pink. The cameo is prong set in the gold-tone setting, which is decorated with flowers and ornate borders in a frame-like effect with cutouts around the cameo and flowers.

This brooch is in very good condition. There is a small nick or flaw in the setting at the top center, but it's largely obscured by the flower. I couldn't find any other signs of wear, and the cameo and clasp are both secure.

Size: The cameo is a little over 1 inch long (2.1 cm). The brooch is 1 5/8 inches wide by 1 15/16 inches long (4 x 4.9 cm).
