A Parting Piece of Knowledge…
Cameos and intaglios have been coveted for thousands of years. Intaglio designs, which entail cutting a design down into the surface of a stone, first became popular in ancient Greece in the sixth century B.C.E. Cameos, which came several hundred years later, are the opposite of intaglios: Their carved designs appear raised from the stone. Cameo pins and brooches were a favorite of European society ladies in the 18th and 19th centuries, while signet rings and wax seals represent a more modern interpretation of the intaglio. Today you can find both as all manner of jewelry or, as seen here, framed and hung on the wall.
