Each Clara Stones cameo is one of a kind piece hand carved in Sardonyx shell by Italian master carver using ancient art of artisan cameo making. Both art and jewellery, the uniqueness of every shell cameo is emphasized with finest precious corals, pearls or rare gemstones and our signature use of sterling silver and 18kt gold.
The art of cameo is an ancient artisan method of carving gems, shell or other objects. Every cameo is a miniature work of art and the most prized ones are hand carved in shell. After a sketch is made the carvers use traditional cameo carving tools to create the image grinding away shell. Most carvers work during the day to take advantage of natural light, doing the majority of the work by hand. Cameos can take a few days to complete.
We believe in timeless quality craftsmanship. All of our pieces are crafted using precious metals. In our creations we use sterling silver, oxidized, white or gold-plated, and 18 kt gold. Our signature use of silver and gold fusion intricately blends together silver and 18kt gold to create a nice contrast. Organic 18kt gold details are torch fused to the silver, and then oxidized for a one-of-a-kind finish that with time and wear reflects the uniqueness of its wearer.
Each Clara Stones piece is as individual as you are! Please note our jewellery is handcrafted in one-of-a-kind or limited editions using natural and organic materials and unique finishes, so sometimes it can vary in appearance and be slightly different than the photo. That is the nature of natural corals, pearls, gemstones and hand made items and makes each piece truly unique and only yours. We have taken care to ensure that the items on our website are presented as accurately as possible; however, colour and clarity will depend upon your own personal monitor and individual adjustments to the computer screen. Clara Stones does not guarantee that the colours of products are identical to the colours that you see on your computer screen.
