This cameo is stunning! Crafted of gold fill, the simple bezel, and decorative frame provides a lovely framework for this classic cameo. The image here is immaculately carved. Cameo is the art of carving a layered material, creating a portrait or landscape with the difference in the colors. While traditionally done in shell, banded onyx has been used in cameo work - particularly in Greece and Italy - for hundreds, if not thousands, of years.
