Some Tips Regarding Cameo Jewelry
Cameos are terrific pieces with a lot of history behind them. However to carry it off seamlessly, it’s important that you do not get into the history of each piece and enjoy the fun element involved. In case you stumble upon the old cameo jewelry left by your grandmother, check them out for any frail end. They can also be taken to a vintage jeweler to give them a modern twist and make them absolutely new and stunning for you to rock on!
Lastly, a very important point must be kept in mind. Cameo jewelry can be susceptible to cracking and drying out. Thus, every time after use, dust them gently and apply some oil on them with your fingers and leave overnight. In the morning, wipe away any remaining oil on the cameo pieces with a soft cloth and store them away in their boxes! They would remain well-preserved!
