    Antique Victorian Hard Stone Classical Cameo Brooch

    This Victorian hard stone cameo was created by carving through the white and coloured layers of hard stones such as agate. Because the stones are harder than the shell used in shell cameos, the engraving is quite often sharper. This example has the top coloured layer left in the hair of the subject to give depth and contrast. Classical subjects such as this male Greek or Roman gentleman were popular during the Victorian period most probably because of the grand Tours the gentry took to Mediterranean countries, immersing themselves in Classical culture.
    This lovely piece could be converted into a ring. Please enquire if this is an option you would like to explore as we can do the work in house.
