Sarah Coventry Cameo Necklace “Evening Profile” 1960s
A very sweet vintage cameo necklace by Sarah Coventry jewelry from the 60s. Black faceted glass, imitating hematite, is set on a shining gold tone pendant. The bail topping the pendant is loopy and rather regal looking. The cameo head, in relief, is almost an iridescent black so that it stands out nicely from the black background.
This vintage necklace is shown in an ad in a Life Magazine dated May 22, 1964 and it is also shown in the book “Emmons & Sarah Coventry Jewelry Fashion Show” by Deborah A. Robinson on page 81. The book shows, side by side, the difference between this necklace and another, very similar called Midnight Cameo.
Pendant measures 1 ¾” long and ¾” wide. Necklace chain is 15 ¾” long and has a spring ring closure.
In excellent condition. Spring ring is in fine working order. The diamond hang tag is present, but might be a replacement because it is darker and not set at the usual location, although it is proper for the piece. The chain appears to be the original and matches the one seen in the above book.
