Cameo for Auction - Ross's Auctioneers & Valuers

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.

 

The most commonly found cameo is a woman's profile carved out of white shell against a coral background. That certainly describes a cameo, but cameos come in a much wider range of materials and designs. 


In fine jewellery, the cameo is defined as an ornament carved in relief from a high-quality material such as stone, shell, coral, bog oak, ivory or mother-of-pearl.  In costume jewellery, cameos are generally made from moulded plastic or glass.
