Cameo Appearance

According to those in the know over at Style.com, the cameo is making a big comeback with fashionistas this season. There’s something so sweet about a vintage cameo piece, I’m finding that I even like some of the newer, edgier ones as well. This trend seems easy enough to get behind, as there are dozens of affordable options on etsy and ebay. What do you think of all these cameos, do you have a preference for edgy or vintage classic?

  3. I had no idea that cameos were making a comeback but I have been lusting over them for months now. If you remember from my Brimfield post, I found a dealer flush in gorgeous large ones – wish I'd had more time to peruse them then!!

  4. I just saw some cameos made in Italy that were on the edgier side… one even had a bee! Perhaps I should start dropping some Xmas hints.

    I just broke out my mother's cameo brooch and a pair of drop earrings I bought in high school (just a couple years ago, of course). They bring a bit of elegance to my fall staples of denim, boots and cashmere!

    Love cameos! My mother collects cameos and has shared several with me. On our trip to Italy this year we visited a cameo factory and saw how they are so skillfully made. Of course we bought one for my Mom to add to her ever growing collection. I think they are a classic like pearls. I have a black and white one that is a fav of mine!! Kathysue

    I love that Cameons are making a comeback. Once thought of a very victorian, I think Cameos are very chich and look great with all the chain and pearl necklace being worn today. I'll be sure to look for Cameos on my next flea market outting.

  16. Hello hello!

    Cameos are cool – especially the vintage ones.
    Myth has it though that, like pearls, cameos must not be given as gifts or it will bring tears and misery to the wearer. Instead they should be borrowed, inherited or purchased in a spell of self-indulgence. Perhaps just Swedish superstition..?!

    I have been 'into' cameos for a few years. I have an antique pendant and have had a ring fashioned from another antique pendant. Love them! I didn't know they were fashionable until now.

    Oh I do love cameos…always have, but maybe it's my age talking…I'm not sure sure what I think of those edgy ones…at least not for me. Glad I read Charlotta's comment…would not want to bring myself any tears or misery.
