A cameo is a miniature work of art. The most popular cameos today are carved in sea shells, a tradition that began in the fifteenth or sixteenth century and was popularized by Queen Victoria of England. Eventually, during the Victorian era, or the era of Romantic Jewelry, cameos were collected by women to represent status, or traded as a love token or gift with their lovers.
