Sold on Layaway | 18K Victorian Hardstone Agate Double Cameo with Pearl & Green Enamel Brooch-Pendant Suite

The piece is decorated with a fine goldwork frame of handcrafted flowers with alternating pearls and green guilloche enamel on the leaves. It is in amazing condition!
The cameos are carved from banded agate, giving it a two tone effect and it is carved to perfection with great detail.
