What is the material?

I had a customer drop a cameo off for us to look at. They were wondering what it is made of and is it of any value. I have attached a photo. The outside bezel of this cameo is in 14 karat yellow gold. It has a straight pin with a C like catch. Hand etched on the back is the number 1812. There is also a pair of matching earrings done in the same material, surrounded by 14 karat yellow gold rope style bezels on french wire earring findings. Any help would be appreciated.
