Antique Cameos

The Wearable Art Form..

Cameos come in all sorts of formats and materials but most are profiles or scenes taken from Classical Greek or Roman ideology. Many Georgian and Victorian Cameos were brought back from Italy as souvenirs of a "Grand Tour" and framed for use in Jewellery. Queen Victoria was a great fan of Cameo Jewellery and Napoleon was a fanatical collector of hard-stone Cameos carved from Agates. Cameos come in all forms of Jewellery, Brooches, Earrings, Bracelets and Necklaces.
