This very dainty antique set features little cameos on onyx with a side portrait of a woman with pearls. The woman, carved in white, sits atop the onyx oval base. On both the necklace and earrings, she is affixed with four prongs and is edged in a delicate frame with tiny rope-like design.

 

The cameo pendant on the necklace hangs from a center piece shaped like a downward flying bird with wide spread wings. It has a thin rim of black enamel painting all around the edges and three abstract leaves. The cameo sits on a oval frame with extended points at the top and bottom. Two antique pendulums hang from the bottom of the cameo frame. Both the frame and the pendulums also have dainty enamel painting in black. The necklace is on a very fine chain with a hook clasp with open metalwork and flower detail.

 

The screwback earrings hang from a little button with open metalwork with a center embossed flower blossom and leaves. Suspended from the button is the same pendulum design as the necklace, finished with the cameo. All pieces are attached by tiny jump rings. Set is unmarked

 

Onyx is .5" long. Necklace pendant including top bar is 2.5" long. Total necklace length is 18.5". Earrings are 2" long.
