Very true - the real deal is the winner. I lost mine years ago I keep meaning to get a new one.

I only just found out about her on True Blood.

Oooh--my grandmother gave me her antique cameo. I feel too o.l.d. when I wear it on a chain. What would you do to make it more youthful? Would grosgrain code matronly too?

Belle de Ville said...

Miss C., I agree that cameos can have a matronly look so I like to wear them in unexpected ways.
I love them pinned on vintage clutch evening bags, the fabric kind, not leather. I'm going to post some photos of bags with brooches.
I also like to wear them in unusual places, like at the waist or on a beret.

Beautiful cameo...one of the only ones I've ever really liked.

I'm not big on cameos but that one is spectacular. The details are astonishing.

Thanks for the beret idea--it's my go-to chapeau in winter!
