Ring Cameo Italian Master Carved Sterling Silver 18k Gold Overlay Carnelian Conch Shell Size 7.25
BEAUTIFUL ITALIAN MASTER-CARVED 925 STERLING SILVER, 18K YELLOW GOLD OVERLAY, FRAMED, CARNELIAN CONCH SHELL, LADIES PROFILE, CAMEO RING Bezel set in a unique 925 sterling silver half round frame this master-carved, carnelian conch shell cameo ring measures 30 x 23 mm, a little more than 1.5 x 0.90 inches and will be a stunning accessory for your wardrobe. THE RING IS A SIZE 7.25 Sea shell cameos are made only in Torre del Greco, near Naples, in Italy. They are created by hand carving individual pieces of double layered sea shells with a steel burin. The artisan attaches the selected piece to the end of a dub stick using special glue. He then begins carving from the softer outer layer which permits the incision of a face or figure, working toward the glassy inner layer which is then cleaned using a rotating brush rendering it shiny. This is an antique art passed on from the Greeks to the Romans which today requires a five to six year apprenticeship to become, given that one has the necessary talent, a master artisan. Black and white sea shells, Cassis Madagascariensis or Sardonic (Sardonyx), come from the Caribbean while the ivory colored shells, called Cassis Rufa or Corniola (Carnelian), come from Madagascar. Each precious cameo is a unique hand made object, an ideal gift of lasting beauty, not a fleeting fad. Note: With time, a cameo may collect dust diminishing its beauty. A soft bristled brush, lukewarm water and neutral soap are all that's needed to restore its original splendor. Great gift or collector's item, exceptional value. THANK YOU FOR LOOKING
365.174 My Masks: Venice
This is probably my most expensive mask (which I got from the shop). It is the kind of gilt mask one would frequently find in the shops of Venice, maybe even with jewels on it. I love the baroque flourishes and the antique gilt finish...
The style of the mask is called a "bauta" style, which comes from the word Italians use to say "boo!" ("bau!"). I guess it is because the mask is scary, but in it's original version, in plain white, it was often used as a traveling mask by wealthy men or women (the pointed shape below the nose makes it easier to talk, eat and drink), to keep the grit of the city or countryside off of their faces, and to not be recognized as to their comings or goings. It has become one of the icons of Venice and represents a colorful part of their heritage.
