I have been collecting cameo jewelry for many years so it was a nice surprise to be looking through the recent Nordstrom’s catalog and see cameo jewelry featured. So, I thought I would revisit my cameo post.
Several of my cameos are heirlooms and every time I wear them I am reminded of the sentimental stories that they hold. Ask your grandmother, your aunt and your mom if they have any cameos lying around -I bet they do. If not, you can find them at vintage and antique stores, flea markets and ebay. The quality of vintage pieces is usually far superior to what you can buy new today.
Get creative with how you wear your cameos -pin brooches on handbags, scarves, necklaces and pair cameo necklaces, bracelets and rings with current jewelry styles. Like anything vintage, cameos can look dated if you don’t wear them with contemporary pieces. Adding the unexpected heirloom piece, like a cameo, will make your whole look much more compelling.
