Antique Cameos

Cameos are among the most exquisite examples of antique jewellery, and we have a fine range available, ranging from the Georgian period through to the 1880s.

Renowned for their expert workmanship, cameos are pieces with have been expertly carved from shell and set within a decorative frame.

These unique items are a must-have for true antique jewellery collectors and are timeless pieces which are a favourite among antique jewellery fans.

Cameos are usually pink in colour, although they can be seen in green, brown, blue, black or any range of colours, and their feminine and intricate designs hold great aesthetic appeal.

And not only do cameos vary in colour, their patterns are also very different. While the traditional cameo is of a woman’s head, we also have floral and cherub designs as well as many more.

They can also be found on a range of different pieces, such as necklaces, bracelets, earrings, brooches and rings and date back as far as the Georgian period, up to the 1880’s when they started to fall out of favour.
