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.

A glorious Victorian American Cameo Ring Circa 1890, this example features a beautiful Onyx specimen carved of a woman with an updo, bangs, and flowing hair down her shoulders.
