This is an elegant Cameo brooch featuring a beautiful cameo figure, carved from shell.
It depicts a front facing profile of an elegant Roman lady with long, wavy hair looking peaceful and solemn. The alabaster like snowy white figure is beautifully contrasted with a dark brown background, and mounted in 9ct Yellow Gold setting with a rope-style edging. It has a secure roller lock pin fastening at the back.
Every so often we see a revival in cameo jewellery on the catwalk or amongst the fashionable elite, but for those that understand the antiquity of this art form, and the immense skill required to create them – they can always pull off a stylish look with it!
