Sixteenth century garnet cameo of Christ in enameled gold pendant

Description

Large pendant with enameled images/tools of the crucifixion, set with a sixteenth century almandine garnet cameo of Christ. The enameled gold pendant is ca. 1840 and could have been part of an important rosary.
It could be that the cameo was set into a piece of jewelry that got damaged and was re mounted in 1840. The cameo is probably Italian and ca 1580.
