A "cameo" is a method of carving which features a raised (or relief) image, and can be dated all the way back to the 3rd Century BC! Ancient Greek cameo vessels jewellery was often made from semi-precious gemstones such as Onyx, Agate & Carnelian, whilst more modern cameos were made of shell and glass.
A very sweet modern vintage cameo ring set in a beautifully made 9ct Yellow Gold setting.
This lovely shell came ring features a skillfully hand-carved portrait of a young lady on a soft terracotta coloured background. She' s fairly dainty in size with the cameo itself measuring approximately 10 x 8mm, and is embellished with pretty split shoulders and a delicate rope design border.
This style of ring was extremely popular during Victorian times; throughout the late 1800's, early 1900's and beyond- although this particular ring is a more modern take from the 1980's!
Offered in excellent vintage condition, she's sure to make a gorgeous and trusted companion.
