COMMENTS: This pendant features the delicate detailing of the traditional cameo subject - a ladies profile. The cameo is held in a yellow gold bezel setting which has an oval shape.

Cameo is a method of carving an object such as an engraved gem, item of jewellery or vessel made in this manner. It nearly always features a raised (positive) relief image; contrast with intaglio, which has a negative image. Originally, and still in discussing historical work, cameo only referred to works where the relief image was of a contrasting colour to the background; this was achieved by carefully carving a piece of material with a flat plane where two contrasting colours met, removing all the first colour except for the image to leave a contrasting background. Classically the designs carved into cameo stones were either scenes of Greek or Roman mythology or portraits of rulers or important dignitaries.
