1- How can I determine my correct size for the necklace?

2- Can the cameo of a bracelet also be worn on the necklace and vice versa?

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.

3- Can I wear the same cameo on a different necklace color?

Of course, the cameo can be easily removed and placed on one of the various colors of necklace available.

4 - Can I buy just the leather necklace without the cameo?

The purchase of the necklace 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 info@annaporcu.com

5- During the online purchase can I buy an extra leather necklace in addition to the one on which the chosen cameo is mounted?

Yes, once you place the Anna Porcu necklace complete with cameo in the cart, you will be given the opportunity to add an extra necklace as well. It is an excellent opportunity to adapt your cameo to different looks.

6- Are the cameos antique?

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

7- 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.

8- 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!

10 - 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.
