- These earrings are handcrafted from:

- Measures approx. 1 inch/ 2.54 cm drop.
Cameos have always fascinated me, with their classic silhouette of a mysterious beautiful lady. Genuine hand-carved cameos are not easy to come by these days and are very expensive. Cameo jewelry is iconic and the earliest examples date back to the 3rd century BC. Because they have been so popular throughout different eras, many people have a cameo that they have inherited or admired. They are typically made out of shell, coral, stone, or lava.
When I stumbled across these lovely ladies, although they aren’t abalone, I thought they were a stunning faux, quite resembling real abalone cameos. I hope you love them as much as I do!
“When we two parted
In silence and tears,
To sever for years,
Pale grew thy cheek and cold,
Colder thy kiss;
Truly that hour foretold
Sorrow to this …”
