Cameos are part of glyptic art and represent some design that stands out in relief (the opposite of intaglios), but they are more than just engraving- they can tell us a story of art and fashion changes through the centuries.

Appearing centuries ago, cameos always carried some message that the wearer wanted to reveal to the public: “it protects me in a fight” as an amulet in ancient Greece; “I am wealthy and respectable” as an expensive collectible piece in Renaissance; or “I am educated and well-traveled” as a Grand Tour souvenir in Victorian England.

These special earrings show two coral crowned cameos of regal ladies in beaded gold halo settings. Coral jewelry, apart from cameo jewelry, was thought in Victorian times to promote good health and it was often worn by young children for this reason. Coral is also associated with the boundless sea and longevity.
