About CameotiqueCameos

How I became a cameo addict.

I would like to share with you all how I became a collector of cameos. It really is a strange story! I was once browsing online to buy some sea shells for home decor. Imagine my surprise when images of shell cameos started to crop up in the search! I had not known about cameos before that.
To cut a long story short, myself being of an impulsive nature, I actually admired and bought one of these shell cameos. It was a vintage classical 'Maiden' cameo, carved in Sardonyx shell. When I received the cameo I was immediately smitten. There is no other way I can describe it. My love for cameos was born there and then and there was no turning back.
Over time my collection grew and grew. My younger son started to call me a hoarder. Perhaps he may be right, but the sad fact is that I am now at a stage where I need to start selling my collection. None of my two sons 'get' cameos. They cannot understand my passion for them, so here I am on Etsy sharing my wonderful little treasures, albeit with a heavy heart. I sincerely hope that my cameos will find new, loving homes and be cared for and cherished for many more years to come.
Cameos are timeless pieces of miniature art, to be treasured and passed from generation to generation. Good cameos are always an investment and will appreciate over time.

Frequently asked questions
What if an item is not as described?

If the item you receive is totally off from how I describe it, then you would be entitled to return it. Please note that this only applies to any item that has been seriously misrepresented, which is very unlikely as I am very careful and honest with descriptions.

Are your cameos reproductions?

No! The cameos are all original antique or vintage items. None of my cameos are in new condition. All cameos will show some form of wear commensurate with age and use. This is part of the charm of antique and vintage items. All items are sold as is.

Do you offer layaway payments? If so what are your terms?

Yes, I gladly offer layaway payments. I will work with you to ascertain your particular layaway terms according to your own budget. A non-refundable deposit consisting of 5% of the item' s value is initially required to secure your layaway. This of course goes toward your purchase unless the layaway is cancelled. If buyer changes their mind whilst still paying a layaway, all monies paid, except for the 5% non-refundable deposit, will go towards store credit.
