This Victorian Era cameo has been converted into a ring with a reproduction shank. The deep black background has been beautifully carved to reveal the delicate white profile of a beautiful Elizabethan lady. The dramatic starkness of the contrasting black and white cameo adds to the poetic quality of the subject matter. Victorians often favored cameos that paid homage to historic figures and fashions, and this is really a spectacular example of the romanticism that colored the world of the Victorians!
