Cameo's

Elegant, Timeless, and Beautiful....
These silhouette ladies are usually carved and quite detailed. They have been around for hundreds of years, many being worn on necklines and lapels and fingers. Hand- crafted of shell, coral, and stone and set into ornate filigree frames. These Victorian era lovely women usually depicts long flowing hair with lovely roses truly are timeless and a favorite of mine...
