Goddess Diana Cameo Brooch with Crescent Moon in Fine Gold Frame with Engraved Details

Q49H56

Description

In true Victorian fashion, this carved cameo centers around the Victorian's fascination with mythology, piqued by archaeological digs in the 19th century. Cameos were made with ancient Roman motifs such as this one, which features Artemis (Diana), the goddess of hunting, with a crescent moon in her hair. The simple engraved bezel setting of this antique cameo is the perfect frame for the ornate carving of the shell. The coloring of the carved shell, with a dark brownish red background, gives the cameo beautiful dimension and interest.

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.
