How to store your shell cameo jewellery.

To get the most benefit out or your cameos, treat them with the care they need. Shell cameos are naturally prone to a certain dryness and/or discoloration as they age. This can be minimized by applying a tiny amount of mineral oil on the back and front of the cameo and leaving it overnight. The next day, the oil may be wiped off with a lint-free cloth. This may be done at least once a year or even twice in a year if the cameos are in a dry environment. Do not store you shell cameos in plastic bags, as they need to have air circulating around them in order to avoid mold and fungi. Do not store your precious shell cameo with other jewelry. The shell is soft and prone to scratching. The best way to store your cameos is in soft jewellery cloth bags that allow the cameo to ‘breathe’.

    Besides offering my own collection of antique cameos, I am also able to provide custom-made cameos through my master carver colleague from Torre del Greco. You would need to provide me with a photo or picture. Contact me for more details.

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.
