- Antique Sardonyx Baguette Diamond Angel Cameo with Wings
Antique Sardonyx Baguette Diamond Angel Cameo with WingsCameos in antique jewelry seem ubiquitous, every broach, pendant etc had a beautiful woman or Greek goddess carved into it. Cameos are typically carved out of carnelian shell, it's a soft color and allows for a low intensity contract between the foreground and background colors. This piece however was carved out of sardonyx shell, which is much more distinctive in color and rare. When looking through thousands of cameos, I only choose to work with the most rare, in material or scene. Angels and cherubs are quite rare in cameo depictions. This piece was embellished with 7.98g of 14kg and 1.26 total carats of diamonds including Baguette stones to further bring out the beauty of this piece. This heirloom will be cherished in your family for years.
