Yes, I work using antique cameos from the 1800s and early 1900s.
No, my cameo jewelry pieces are unique and one-of-a-kind. However, if you like a specific subject and the cameo that portrays it has already been sold, I will do my best, upon request, to find a similar one but it will NEVER be the same.
I often get this question but, unfortunately, the answer is no.
All the cameos that I use in my design were chosen by my eye and my heart. I am sure you do understand!
Once in the setting, the cameo is secure. Nonetheless, like all jewelry, the piece must be treated with a certain amount of care and caution.
The purchase of the bracelet alone, without the cameo, is reserved exclusively for customers who have already purchased Anna Porcu jewelry complete with cameo. You can order it by writing to email@example.com

The leather used by Anna Porcu comes from Florentine tanneries.
The bezel of the bracelets has a horizontal orientation, while the one on the necklaces is vertical, so in order to preserve the correct view of the cameo image it is not possible to exchange them. Pieces, which are carved with flowers or geometric elements instead of scenes on the cameo or on the stone, can adapt well both in a vertical and horizontal pattern.
Of course, the cameo can be easily removed and placed on one of the various colors of bracelet available.

CARE OF JEWELRY, CAMEO, LEATHER
Anna Porcu jewelry is made with original antique cameos from the 19th century. To preserve the patina, we recommend cleaning the cameo simply with lukewarm water, delicately rubbing the surface with an old toothbrush. If you need a more thorough cleaning you can add a drop of shampoo to the water. Dry well with a cotton cloth.
Silver and golden silver sometimes tend to oxidize, especially in contact with the leather of bracelets and necklaces. To remedy the blackening of the bezel, it is enough to carefully remove the cameo from the leather bracelet or necklace on which it is mounted and clean it with a soft cloth, specifically made for cleaning silver. It will shine again.
We use vegetable tanned leather from a Florentine tannery. This fine leather has been produced with a wax finish. With a little care, it should remain beautiful for years. As with all leathers, we recommend keeping the piece out of water and direct sunlight (whenever possible!). If the leather comes into contact with water, wipe with a dry cotton cloth and allow to air dry. It is recommended to use a leather (hide) conditioner such as saddle soap from time to time if it is necessary to rehydrate. This will improve the condition of the leather and extend its life.

Yes, it is possible if the design of the earrings allows enough space in the back of the earring to mount a clip. This work may require an additional fee. For information write to email@example.com
