This is a beautiful, unique left-facing carved shell Grecian-style Krementz cameo brooch. It also has a loop to allow it to be worn as a pendant. The pin is stamped with “KREMENTZ”. This mark was used by the Krementz jewelry company from 1884 until the 1950s.
It is in good vintage shape. From the back, slightly under the gold mounting there are two lines in the shell. I’m not sure if they were flaws in the shell from the beginning or if they happened at a later date. They are not visible from the front and are all but hidden on the back. They do not appear to affect the integrity of the piece in any way.
All of the information about this piece is based on my own research. I am not an expert, just someone who loves beautiful objects. If you would like more details or photos before purchasing, please feel free to ask.
