Little cameos have always got a romantic symbolism as it is said that the cameo carvers were used to depict the image of the women they loved on them when commissioned to realize women's silhouettes. Today we're bringing this classic piece into the new century pairing it with whitey baroque pearls. Cameos are handset in 18k gold over silver. They're minimal enough to add an understated touch of sophistication to your daily outfits. Pierced earrings with post back and butterfly fastening, presented in a Vintouch signature packaging. Entirely handcrafted in our workshops in the town of Torre del Greco, Italy, our cameos hand-carved from a special, exquisite type of porcelain that is called biscuit, made of the same mineral oxides of the antique cameos carved by Greeks and Romans back to III century B.C. The manufacturing process of our cameos requires high craftsmanship skills and extreme precision: with the aid of a very fine chisel called bulino we bring up the lines of the designs and enhance the harmony of the reliefs, before the cameos are fired up at very high temperatures in order to be finally set in precious metals. Vintouch Cameo Jewelry pieces are extremely resistant and they don't need any particular attention. By the way, we suggest to avoid to make the cameo jewelry piece in contact with soaps, cosmetics, detergents and chlorine, that could alterate the natural characteristics of the Jewel. When it is not worn, keep your cameo jewelry piece in its bag in order to protect it from natural oxidation. Only if necessary, use a suede cloth and delicately clean the surface of the Jewel. Each one of our jewel is nichel-free and realized in full compliance with the Reach/Rohs directives from UE.
