An incredible Archaeological Revival demi-parure consisting of a pendant and two earrings in incredible 15ct gold. The pieces have been delicately cannetilled, constructed with small boule decorations, embellished on the central pendant with additional articulated balls, and featuring an “s” hook at the bottom for the effortless addition of a drop pendant or other embellishment. This wonderful cameo set features what appears to be a cameo of Psyche flanked by two mirrored cameos of Diana at the center of the earrings. What is so exceptional about this set is the colorway of agate used for the creation of the cameos. The figures are silhouetted in a delicate dark chocolate brown tone, creating stark contrast and recalling the monochromatic thema in Archaeological Revival jewelry. This incredibly high caliber set would make a fantastic addition to any collection.
