Condition Report

Overall the condition of the cameo is very good with minor dirt and wear to the surface consistent with age. There are natural dots in the stone (white in the blue/white areas; orange in the brown areas). There is general wear to the ring mount. The gold setting is probably earlier and the ring itself added later.
