Neoclassical Pendant w/ Agate Cameo, Diamonds

Europe, Neoclassical period, ca. 19th century CE. A beautifully carved agate cameo featuring a profile bust of a Classically-styled man wearing a laurel wreath. This is set in a 15 karat gold pendant inlaid with dozens of round diamonds of antique cut. The Neoclassical period saw immense northern European interest in the Classical world, in part inspired by the budding science of archaeology. Artists looked to the deep past for inspiration, but brought an imaginative sensibility to their depictions of it. Size: 0.8" W x 1.05" H (2 cm x 2.7 cm); cord is: 20" L (50.8 cm); 5.7 grams

Condition: One diamond lost. Very small areas of encrustation on surface. Antique cameo and pendant on a modern cord.
