12 Sep Cameos
For those who love all things Victorian, vintage cameos will satisfy your nostalgic desire!
Ancient carving traditions were once used to tell stories and record events.
We have taken that timeless tradition and transformed the cameo into wearable, miniature sculptures.
Each piece is different, telling its unique story.
Cameos are immediately recognizable as something glamorous from another era. Cameos were quite popular during the Victorian era, approximately 1837 – 1901. It was during this era when the profile cameo, rather than other front-facing designs, became the most popular of the designs.
In the fifteenth or sixteenth century, cameos were introduced in a “raised” design. Designs were engraved or carved on the top layer of any chosen material, such as coral, river stones, shells lava stones, or other material.
