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. Both men and women wore cameos set as necklaces, brooch, rings, and earrings for women, and watch fobs, rings, and stick pins for men.
