Cameos In Profile

Cameos, gently crafted and carved into beautiful seashells, have been around since the early Greeks. Cameos gained a renaissance of popularity when Napoleon deemed them the crown jewel and required all the ladies of court to wear them as part of their accessories. Cameos can be found today in many antique shops—to honor Jane, look for ones in which the carved figures wear clothing and accessories typical of the Regency period.
