For grandmothers to granddaughters the cameo has historically been the perfect gift for the most important woman in your life. Although cameos date back to the third Century Greece and later Rome, they saw a revival in the 18th and 19th century’s in France and England. Cameos carved in shell instead of the classic hardstone or glass became popular during the reissuance era. Each hand carved cameo in my pendant necklace collection was handpicked by me for their beautiful natural iridescence and sentimental carvings. If you’re looking for an heirloom gift the cameo is my top choice.
Spinel- Uncommon! Natural black spinel is an opaque, jet-black gemstone. These B grade gemstones are hand cut with brilliant sparkle! Known as the premier black gemstone, Black spinel is often associated with love, protection, and passion. Spinel has been said to increase the duration of life and aid with controlling rage. This Gemstone is the perfect gift for the 22nd wedding anniversary. You just can’t go wrong with this sophisticated, timeless …little black Gem!
Pendant measures 2 inches, and is sold as a pendant no chain included. Your Cameo will arrive in a beautiful gift box.

Cleaning and care instructions- Do not use silver cleaner on your pearls, or shell cameo! Use a mild soapy cloth to gently remove any body oils etc. To brighten the silver use a polishing cloth. Silver cleaner and other chemicals, (hair spray, perfumes, pools, and yes even hot tubs,) can damage Shell, gemstones and pearls. To keep your silver looking its best, I recommend you store all silver jewelry in a anti tarnish bag.
Keeping it Real- Due to the nature of the authentic natural components used in my hand crafted artisan jewelry, each piece will be unique. Any inclusions are considered by me to add to the beauty of these natural treasures from the earth and sea.
