Description
These pretty clip-on earrings recall the fashion for cameos in the 18th century; originally created in ancient Egypt in 1500 BC cameos were popular during 3rd century BC in both Greece and Rome. Revived during the Renaissance this form of gem carving lost favour until the 18th century when gentleman on the Grand Tour brought back examples. Cameo jewellery was so popular that imitation pieces were created, notably by Scottish gem engraver James Tassie (1735–1799) who devised a method of reproducing gemstone cameos as 'Tassie casts' where enamel reliefs were set onto ground glass.
