Beautiful, carved images used for personal adornment have cast their romantic spell over people's imaginations for thousands of years. As both a sentimental keepsake and a work of art, concentrating major drama into a minute space, the cameo is one of the most treasured sculpted images.

A cameo is a small scene or figure carved in relief. This modern Italian word, meaning "to engrave", is thought to have come from the ancient Arabic word "khamea", meaning "amulet". Folklore relates cameos' mystic capacity to attract health and good fortune. The enduring popularity of the cameo attests to its delicate power to beguile generations of wearers and viewers alike.

Delicious all original examples, this pair features massive ribbon frames enhanced with glowing strands of wire set pearls around neoclassical cameos of Greco-Roman goddesses in coral, a stone known for its protection.
