Antique jewellery forms revived several times in the course of the 20th century. Especially the 1980s recalled models from the supposedly good old days. Antiques were in demand as never before and belonged as a badge of good taste in the stylish home of the decade. Not only were old pieces of jewellery worn again, but new creations were also created in the spirit of the 19th century. The present piece of jewellery, which found its way to us from the Rhineland, and a typical representative of this fashion. It features a high-oval shape and can be worn both as a brooch and as a pendant thanks to a brooch on the back and a fold-in loop made of high-carat yellow gold. In its center, it bears an exquisite cameo of two-tone layered stone. In unusually fine and detailed cut we see the portrait of a young lady in profile. She wears a delicate frilled dress and her wonderfully curly hair is held by a diadem-like headband and a silk scarf. The cut is of exceptional quality and is in no way inferior to models from the 19th century. The lady in porcelain white stands out vividly against the green background. Excellently crafted and wonderfully detailed cut, the piece of jewellery is a stylish eye-catcher from the 80s with a nostalgic touch.
