Where women are found hiding inside seashells
An Italian cameo is not only a treasured piece of jewelry, it is also a work of art
For centuries, artisans from the small Italian fishing village of Torre del Greco have found beauty at the bottom of the ocean. They are masters of the ancient art of carving cameos from carnelian shells. With patience and precision they remove layers of hard shell to reveal the delicate images underneath.
An exquisite example of old world tradition and craft, the Carnelian Cameo Ring features the popular subject of a beautiful young lady in profile. This is the perfect opportunity to own a handcrafted cameo from the capital of cameo artistry––Torre del Greco.
