2- Are the cameos antique?

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

3- 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.

4- 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!

Anna Porcu jewelry is made with original antique cameos from the 19th century.

If you need a more thorough cleaning you can add a drop of shampoo to the water. Dry well with a cotton cloth.
