Antique reverse intaglio carved amber necklace II (cameo)
A carved amber and pearl chain necklace.
Approximate length 50 cm.
Made with 925 silver.
The amber necklace has a lovely classic feel. A beautiful collar of dark amber beads and pearls support a larger amber pendant. The pendant, although round in shape, has been lightly facetted on the edges. The centrepiece is a sculptured profile of a richly decorated lady with a small bird.
All the metal elements have been made with sterling silver in polished finish.
The sculpture inside the amber pendant has been made by using a reverse intaglio method. This is a manual technique of carving amber at the back of a cabochon. This gives a a multi-dimensional effect to the sculpture inside. The figure carved in the amber is commonly called a cameo.
The amber necklace comes in a beautiful complimentary jewellery box.
