This cameo is stunning! Crafted from 925 sterling silver, the simple bezel with trellis style filigree provides a lovely framework for this classic cameo. The image here is immaculately carved, and the larger size allows for fine detail.
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.
Love this piece but want to make it more versatile, we here at Market Square Jewelers along with our master metalsmiths can convert this fantastic brooch into a necklace or pendant for an additional fee, please contact us for more information!
