Delicate and really lovely

Simply put, this cameo necklace is delicate, charming, and beautifully made. Rather than the usual carved (often crude) shell cameo, this one is crafted from clay. It appears to be jasperware, a meticulously molded image of a putti (child angel) applied to an unglazed background disk--a neutral combination of pure white against charcoal gray. The pearls and silver chain add additional bright refinement. I love it!

A portrait of elegance

An Italian cameo is not only a treasured piece of jewelry but also a work of art

Cameos have cast their romantic spell over people’s imaginations for thousands of years. Concentrating major drama into a minute space, the cameo is one of the most treasured sculpted images. 

To bring you this wearable art we went to the heart of cameo carving artistry in the world–– Torre Del Greco–– and found a group of artisans that blend techniques developed in Naples during the 18th century with the classic Neapolitan tradition of cameo carving of Torre del Greco. The Cherubino Cameo Collection is the stunning result.

Cameos have depicted everything from real life portraits of royalty to mythological and historical symbols. The cherub on our collection is an iconic representation of romance and love and exhibits the type of remarkable detail you would expect from a master craftsman. Each piece is bezel-set in sterling silver and accented with freshwater pearls. 

The artisans have made the socially-responsible decision to create ceramic cameos, as many species of shells used in the work of the traditional cameo are considered endangered. This marble-like hardstone enhances every cut and chiseled beautifully and has a lustrous sheen that looks perpetually polished. This collection is truly a portrait of elegance.
