This is a beautiful old cameo carved in the 1850s of two roman goddesses the first on is:

The clue is in the moon shaped diadem. This carving is of the goddess of the dawn - Eos to the Greeks; Aurora to the Romans.
The cameo is set in a newer one of a kind designer frame measuring 4 inches from top to bottom (JUMBO CAMEO) Set in 14kt rolled gold wire.
An interesting Pendant. The second figure is:

The Roman Goddess Juno who was born from Ops (earth, abundance) and Saturn (time). She was both sister and wife of Jupiter with whom she gave birth to various deities amongst whom we have Vulcan.

Juno was an early Italic deity associated with the cycles of the moon, of childbirth and of marriage often portrayed breastfeeding a child. Her image slowly transformed from one of nurturing mother into one of a stern matron who was having to keep an eternal look-out on her libertine husband and casting jealous vengeance against Jupiter’s many lovers. Juno formed part of the Capitoline triad of deities together with Jupiter and Minerva – the official state deities which protected Rome’s power.

As protector and counselor of the Roman state and protector of state funds she had numerous epithets, some associated with marriage such as "Cinxia" she who loses the bride’s girdle (interesting backdrop to Propertius’ beloved Cynthia?), "Lucina", "Regina" (queen), Sororia and Moneta.

Juno had a feast in her honour called the Matronalia on the 1st of March as well as a second festivity on 7th July. The month of June is named after her and her sacred beasts were geese and peacocks.

A large and historic cameo.
