This product is currently out of stock and unavailable.

Vintage shell cameos for jewellery making and restoration.

Stunning vintage cameos cut from a single piece of shell.

Different layers of the shell are different colours, which allows carvers to overlay a design onto a different coloured background.

Different shells have been used throughout time, as cameos have been popular for many years. There are also other types carved from various other materials - Agate, Onyx, etc.

We won't have too many Cameos in stock, as they are handmade! The few that we do have in stock sometimes are all vintage. In some cases they are signed on the back by the maker, but it is often difficult to distinguish.


Cameos are a curved shape, which makes measuring the 'depth' of them very difficult; they are rarely more than a mm or two thick in most places.


Our current stocks include:

  • #1 - 55x40x10MM - a large thick cameo.
  • #2 - 30x22.85x4.35MM - unfortunately broken to the top right. It may be repaired by an expert, or used it a way that will cover the damage.
  • #3 - 30x22.75x3.7MM
  • #4 - 29.8x22x4.35MM
  • #5 - 30x23.3x3.75MM
  • #6 - 29.7x23x4.2MM
  • #7 - 30x22.85x4MM
