As the artistic subject of this lyrical cameo, the "Three Graces" are the Greek mythological figures Agilia (Splendor), Euphrosyne (Mirth), and Thalia (Good Cheer). An intense interest in Greco-Roman culture and art during the Victorian era in England and America made mythological subjects an extremely popular theme for cameo jewelry.
Many in the modern age associate these three figures with the Christian concepts of Faith, Hope, and Charity.
Meticulously artisan hand engraved with exquisite detail, this romantic carnelian shell cameo is set in a 14K yellow gold bezel oval frame. Signed on the back by Borriello of Italy, this wonderful cameo has a hidden bail on the back which can accommodate a large neckchain or omega necklace, which makes it possible to wear this work of art both as a pendant and as a brooch.
Measuring 35 millimeters high, this enchanting artisan carved cameo is ideal to collect and wear as an heirloom to add to your fine estate jewelry collection.
An elegant box is included.

Our Customers Say..."Antique Jewelry Mall is excellent! My girlfriend lives out of state and I needed the ring by a certain day because I was flying out to see her and I wanted to propose that weekend. I contacted AJM to find out the status and to let them know my order was urgent. I was assured that it would be delivered on time. It was actually delivered earlier than I expected! Their customer service is great and the ring is beautiful. My experience with AJM was first rate and I would highly recommend them. Now I only hope the experience when I pop the question goes as well. Thanks again Antique Jewelry Mall." - Dave B.
