Vintage Sterling Silver
XB17 - $95
Paula says - "A cabochon is a gemstone that has been smoothly shaped and polished as opposed to being cut with flat facets. This usually results in a stone with a rounded convex top and flat bottom. Opaque gems, such as onyx are often cut as cabochons, while transparent stones such as diamonds are facetted."
Secure box clasp.
