Vintage and Antique Cameo Jewelry History

Vintage and antique cameo jewelry is trending among celebrities and style setters. What makes these little carved jewels so endearing?

Regardless of how a cameo jewelry resurgence came to be, their significance and fascinating, expansive history has made them a popular item among collectors and jewelry aficionados. A cameo is a gemstone carved in a raised relief that features landscapes, mythological figures, or most notably, portraits of women’s profiles. Real, authentic cameos are made from natural material and gemstones such as: onyx, sardonyx, agate, ivory, coral and lava. These hand-carved, detailed reliefs are typically set in gold or silver and used to adorn pieces of jewelry such as necklaces, bracelets, pendants and rings.

Many of the earliest forms of cameo can be traced back to prehistoric petroglyphs, used to depict religious figures and mythological images onto rocks. With the rise of the Roman Empire, cameo craftsmen began to expand upon their uses and portrayed political portraits into their artwork.

From there, cameo carving greatly progressed during the Renaissance and Elizabethan periods where elite women started to don cameos to showcase their cultural status. However, the most well-known era for the collection and distribution of cameos was inspired by royal cameo collectors Emperor Napoleon Bonaparte and Queen Victoria during the 19th centurylockets enclosed with hair, cameos depicting cupid or a loved one’s face and enamel pieces are popular examples of what historians call the Romantic period of Victorian jewelry.

Cameo jewelry values vary significantly depending upon the intricacy of the carving and authenticity of the piece. High-quality, one-of-a-kind cameo can cost upwards of $10,000; however, cameo knock-offs can be quite inexpensive.
