Cameo stones are always classy jewelry components to work with. Common cameo motifs included mythological figures and leaders of state in ancient times; cameos roared back into fashion with Queen Victoria, and modern cameos often depict young women, flowers, religious motifs, such as the Madonna and Child, and astrological signs.

Cameos are beautiful wrapped in wire as brooches, pins, pendants, and rings; you can also bezel or peyote stitch these striking cameo stones for an ornate, elegant look. Sophisticated, refined, and head-turning, our quality cabochons will impress your customers and become lovely heirloom jewelry pieces!
