Cameos

Cameos are an ancient art form and were created in most eras from the Roman to the Renaissance and through modern day. The cameo is a unique and beautiful form of vintage jewelry. Cameos were originally commissioned as portraits to be carried, either of a loved one or of a major historical figure or monarch. They could be carved from hard stone or from shell and set in a variety of ways. You’ll find vintage cameo pendants, cameo rings and cameo bracelets depicting Grecian women, mythical scenes and soldiers. There is no lack of cameo styles from which a collector can choose – for the most part, it’s all about personal taste.
