Although I rarely see cameos being worn today, they were once the height of fashion. Some of the finest, in both shell and hardstone, were carved in Italy and imported to London to be set in brooches by Victorian manufacturing jewellers such as John Brogden. In this 1858 portrait by Noble, Mrs John Thomas wears a particularly lovely example depicting the three graces.
