Agate Cameo Pendant
Made in Melbourne by Clara Carija for Victoria's Kingdom
This necklace features a cameo charm on a 45cm chain.
Cameos were a common way to memorialise loved ones during the Victorian Era
Cameo is a method of carving an object such as an engraved gem, item of jewellery or vessel made in this manner. It nearly always features a raised (positive) relief image; contrast with intaglio, which has a negative image. Originally, and still in discussing historical work, cameo only referred to works where the relief image was of a contrasting colour to the background; this was achieved by carefully carving a piece of material with a flat plane where two contrasting colours met, removing all the first colour except for the image to leave a contrasting background.
