COMMENTS: 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.
Crafted of 14k yellow gold, circa 1980s. Pictured as received from a local estate. Excellent estate condition with minimal wear indicative of age. Coin pictured for size comparison. Additional measurements provided upon request.
