Cameo jewelry has been around for a very long time but unfortunately, cameo pendants and other silver cameo jewelry are no longer as popular as they used to be. The reason isn’t what you would suspect – no, they aren’t out of trend but it is quite difficult to identify authentic cameo jewelry collection. Commonly made of shells, stone, coral, glass or lava, cameos are raised relied on which mostly depict faces and mythical scenes. Victorian cameo jewelry is most commonly set in gold or silver. However, nowadays cheaper alternatives of cameos are abundantly available in the market that is made of molded plastic, resin or glass. While original cameo silver jewelry would be hand-carved, these duplicates aren’t.
Also known as intaglios, they are most commonly available as cameo pendant jewelry. Mostly treasured as a family heirloom. Cameos usually evoke a dreamy sense of the past. In most cameo silver pendant jewelry, the carvings are of gods and goddess gazing dreamily into the distance.
Silver cameo pendants are not only known for their beautiful inscriptions but also because of their metaphysical properties. The mysterious allure of the images inscribed on intaglios has a mystical charm that has a metaphysical effect on a wearer. This effect is accentuated by the face that cameos can also be inscribed on precious and semi-precious stones that modify mood and affect behavior to a large extent.
