Cameo jewellery

I have always had a fondness for cameo jewellery. My mother had a set of shell cameo – pendant, brooch/pendant, ring, and earrings. I gifted everything but the brooch/pendant and have regretted it every since.

Below are my paternal grandmother’s cameo brooch with safety chain, and my mother’s brooch (which can also be worn as a pendant). They are both beautiful. My mother’s one has the most glorious detailed carving.

For a while now, I have been perusing cameo rings on Etsy. I prefer shell and agate to jasperware and lava. Find the items below here, here, and here

And of course, if money were no object, I would be dripping in vintage ruby, moonstone and amethyst rings. All the rings below come from the Etsy shop, Otherwise Engaged.

I also like these two (Etsy shop names are under the photographs)
