Cameo Jewelry Tells A Story

Carved Shell Cameo Pin Pendant #793050

One of the things we love the most about vintage jewelry is the exquisite attention to detail in many of the pieces.

Cameos are an example of that exactness and steady-handed precision. They often depict the profile of a person or multiple people. Sometimes, landscapes are depicted on cameos.

Although cameo pin pendants are by far the most popular types, cameos are also found on Estate items such as bracelets, rings and earrings.

We like to think of cameos as miniature sculpted art. Each piece tells a story with a carefully delivered image. Look at a cameo and you will see manners, customs, myths and historic events depicted in great detail. Like a snapshot of the past, they combine fine artistry with painstakingly accurate detailing.

From the time of Cleopatra to the present day, cameos have claimed a place in jewelry fashion. Without a doubt, cameos offer something for everyone.
