Medium Oval Sapphire Clip Earrings
This clip earring set features a cameo set in gorgeous sapphire glass surrounded by 14k gold plate. Each piece of jewelry in this collection is handmade and/or finished to order by expert craft folks outside the small town of Nevada City, California, located in the foothills of the Sierra Mountains.
Cameo is a carving that usually features a relief or raised finished image, which is in contrast to an intaglio, which is carved into the surface. Also in discussing historical work, cameo only referred to works where the relief is of a contrasting color to the background.
Gold plate: Clean as needed with soft dry cloth. Do not use polishing cloth or any abrasive cleaner. Glass cameos and intaglios: Gently rub with soft cloth dampened with water.
