Cameos owe their origins to ancient carving traditions, a craft dating back to nearly 15,000 years BC in Egypt. Figures were carved into rocks to record significant events. Since, they’ve been decorated with a wide range of carvings, representing everything from mythological and biblical beings to status and prestige. Today, Cameos are collected worldwide and feature in many contemporary fashion collections such as the work of Dolce and Gabbana.
