Why We Love Them?
It really goes without saying that here at the Cabochon & Cameo Jewellery Store we REALLY love cabochons & cameos. There are just so may things to love about this style of jewellery; here are just a few:
There is a timeless quality to cabochons and cameos in particular which I find infinitely appealing. I love that I am wearing a style/type of necklace that woman have proudly worn for centuries. I find it somehow empowering as a woman to wear a cabochon or cameo necklace – as if each time I put it on, I am connecting somehow to amazing women from times past. There is a continuity to it – a passing of the torch of sisterhood from one generation to the next
Since the Roman era cabochons & cameos have been worn as a sign of prestige, success, beauty it’s no wonder it has endured through the ages. Cabochons & cameos simply make a woman feel good about themselves when they wear one.
Cabochons & cameos are a way of keeping memories alive
In today’s tumultuous social climate, it can sometimes be challenging to define what is feminine. At times it feels like you are saying something wrong to say you want to be ‘feminine’. Perhaps the word has just been so misconstrued over time that it’s true meaning and power have been blurred. ‘Feminine’ in all of its layers is subjective from woman to woman.
For me, I like feeling womanly; equal parts soft and gentle mixed with strength & personal empowerment. Wearing a beautiful cabochon or cameo makes reflects these characteristics to me; there is the soft womanly cabochon or cameo image set within the strong and unbreakable bezel, and both of these hang from a strong, yet soft & comfortable necklace.
Cabochons & cameos are incredibly feminine, and reflect the grace & beauty of a women’s style.
I have an intense dislike of anything mass produced. Just like I don’t want to wear the exact same haircut that every other woman is sprouting, or jet about in the same outfit as half the town. I also don’t want to wear the same old necklace that hundreds, thousands or millions of other women are wearing. I want to be me; just like I want my clothes and hair to reflect who I am, I also want my jewellery to embody who I am.
Cabochon & cameo jewellery is a fantastic means of setting my outfit apart from everyone else. Not only are they are a wonderful means to express your individual style, but they also have the ability to tell people something about you without you uttering a word.
