Carved Lava Cameo, Victorian Era, Greek Roman Style

Description

A personal favorite in the shop, this cameo is carved of lava basalt, possibly from Pompeii or Vesuvius. The cameo depicts a young man in the classic Renaissance Style. The framework is 9k Yellow gold with a simple C Clasp. This piece dates to the early 1900s.

Cameo is the art of carving a layered material, creating a portrait or landscape with the difference in the colors. While traditionally done in shell, banded onyx has been used in cameo work - particularly in Greece and Italy - for hundreds, if not thousands, of years.
