3- Are the cameos antique?

Yes, I work using antique cameos from the 1800s and early 1900s.

4- Are cameos reproducible?

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.

5- Can I give you a cameo that I own to be reassembled on design by Anna Porcu?

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!

7 - How should I clean my cameo?

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.
