The use of cameos in necklaces, earrings, bracelets, brooches, and rings is one of the most prolific jewelry motifs used throughout the Victorian Era. Though they pre-date the Victorian era, for the travel-loving Victorians a cameo was a favorite, possibly representing a meaningful souvenir of a Grand European Tour. They were also equally worn between men and women.

Throughout most of the story, Laura is a young English woman of 18-19 years old. She is described by Carmilla in chapter 3 as "...a beautiful young lady, with golden hair and large blue eyes, and lips". As the story was set during the Victorian era, Laura dresses in traditional Victorian clothes. 

One of the most memorable moments in Carmilla is perhaps the first time Laura appears to Carmilla, carriage-wrecked and wandering; these earrings recalled that picturesque meeting for our protagonists.
