The term cameo originally meant carving a design into a single material in bas-relief. They were usually done using shell, stone or other material. Indications are that cameos were first carved in the 15th or 16th century
where the subject matter was derived from the Greek and Roman period.  However, popularity flourished during the reign of Queen Victoria

Intaglio jewelry is reverse cut from a cameo , cut from the back and sometimes highlighted with handpainting, enamels or other colored glass or gemstone.

A beautiful pink shell cameo bracelet set in 14K white gold includes three cameos (all different).  The center cameo is 1-3/4 x 1-1/4". The other two are smaller. All are facing right. The detail and shade on these is exemplary and they reflect the softness that is always associated with cameo jewelry.  A very comfortable fit on the wrist and the ability to extend the length with just the addition of an O-ring makes this a very desirable bracelet.  The perfect gift for yourself or another.

Custom made cameo by Nostalgique is 2" in diameter with a goldtone vintage metal profile on deep ine background and rose pink rhinestone accents.

This is a beautiful shell cameo with 14K gold bezel. The carving is fine and the girl is lovely with a bird perched on a flower. She is wearing a textured dress with flowers at the bodice and in her hair.  This is a brooch/pendant combination and is part of a recent estate lot of jewelry.  It is signed 14K and appears to be numbered.

A beautiful cameo in every respect. Delicate detailed carving on shell is surrounded by an 800 silver marcasite frame. This is a brooch/pendant and comes with an 18" fine sterling chain. Wonderful for your wearing or collecting, you won't be disappointed with this piece.

This is a unique cameo brooch designed from vintage materials by Nostalgique. The backing is from an otherwise unusable victorian buckle and the cameo topper appears to be a wood composition material also vintage. To keep with the image, an older brass pin back was used. All patina was left as found.

A quality carved vintage shell cameo by BOJAR has a delicate 18K gold filled bezel and a 14K fine 14" chain.

Deeply carved black bakelite cameo is 2 x 2-1/2" with finely detailed carving.
