The carved cameo panel depicts Hebe, the Greek goddess (Juventas, the Roman goddess) of youth and divine cupbearer to the gods, serving ambrosia to the Aetos Dios, a giant golden eagle which served as Zeus' personal messenger and animal companion. (Zeus was Hebe's father).


The carved shell cameo is displayed within a 9ct yellow gold shaped frame.


The pierced decorated frame has a curvelinear form, accented with tri-lobed motifs.


The cameo secures to the reverse with a hinged pin and C clasp.


This versatile brooch is also fitted with an integrated suspension loop and jump ring to the upper border to allow it to be worn as a pendant.


This exceptional original antique carved shell cameo brooch/pendant has been independently tested using state of the art technology (Niton XL2 Analyzer) and verified as 9ct gold.
