Cameo, Lapis Lazuli & Pearl Sterling Silver Necklace
This is an absolutely brilliantly beautiful hand carved bone cameo. Obviously carved with the same skill and artistry that created fantastic treasures in ivory, but this is sustainable bone. And it is gorgeous! It measures 2 inches by 1 1/2 inches and has a 2 1/2 inch drop. The bezel surrounding the cameo and the loop are all sterling silver. This was hand carved in Bali.
The necklace is made of oval lapis lazuli gemstones and soft creamy freshwater pearls. Sterling silver glows between each gemstone and pearl.
The necklace is approximately 19 inches long with a 3 inch sterling silver extender chain and sterling silver lobster clasp.
The carving is of a woman surrounded by flowers and butterflies. The detail, of her face, her drop earring, her hand and hair, and of flowers and butterflies is extraordinary - obviously the work of a skilled master artist.
We designed this to be very versatile. It will fit within the neck of a business blouse, a la Emily Deschanel's character, "Bones, " in the TV show by the same name, or in the neck of a gorgeous cocktail dress. With the sterling silver extender chain, it can be worn over a turtle neck sweater for a more casual look.
