A large, 6×4.5cm oval shell cameo set in 9k yellow gold.
This finely carved shell cameo depicts a beautiful woman with flowers and ivy leaves on her head and shoulder. It can be worn as a brooch or pendant. The carver’s etched mark is faintly visible. Cameo jewellery has been around for centuries and as with any classic trend it cycles in an out of fashion. During difficult times people look for styles of a simpler era and Vintage jewellery is back in demand. Film stars recently wore cameos at red carpet occasions. Signs of a new trend?
