About Castle Cameo Collection
Castle Cameo Collection: Wearable Art for the Collector.
I design beautiful, wearable art by taking antique or vintage cameos I have collected from all over the world and adding them to exceptional pearls to create one of a kind cameo jewelry that is a work of art. My antique cameos range in age from the mid-19th to the early 20th centuries as well as some new reproductions that I spend a lifetime collecting in places like Italy, England, the Czech Republic, and the United States. Each piece is unique and completely original! The cameos I use to create an antique cameo necklace, ring, or pin are carved from exquisite materials like shells, sardonyx, corals, and lava, depicting classic reliefs of maidens, muses, cherubs, and Greek Gods, which are usually set in White or Yellow Gold. I try to only use high quality estate pearls like Akoya, Baroque, freshwater, and seed pearls for my fine pearl jewelry. Some of my pieces also feature beautiful gemstones like diamonds, amethyst, rubies, sapphires, and tourmaline, as well as 14 Karat Gold clasps. I also offer a wonderful collection of gorgeous cameo and intaglio pendants, pins, rings, bracelets, earrings, and other inspired collectables.
Cameos are meant to be worn, and this dying art is too beautiful not to be showcased! I am hoping to bring cameos back to the forefront where they belong, which is why I created this collection of beautiful cameo jewelry, proudly meant to be worn everyday! Whether your are a collector of fine antiques or just someone who loves beautiful cameo and fine pearl jewelry, I hope my jewelry brings you as much joy as I have found in creating it - Patti Castle
