Famously worn by Queen Victoria, the cameo was a popular accessory for those who moved in the upper circles of British society. Women of the 19th century were often seen wearing cameos as an accessory.

Cameos were commonly worn at the crook of the neck, with the female silhouette acting as a symbol for decadent femininity, or a mirror image of yourself—if gifted by the right lover of course!

Chain Length: 55cm / 22 inches

Size Information

All our hoop, huggie and butterfly back earrings have a standard earring gauge of 20G. This is ideal for healed piercings.Conch hoop also have a 20G.Our labret and barbells have a 18G.

Gauge to MM Conversion:

20G - 0.8mm

18G - 1mm

16G - 1.2mm

Most piercings will be done with a thicker needle, eg. a 16G and when the piercing is healed it is recommended to reduce the gauge size of your bar.

Bar Length

New helix piercings will be done with a 8mm bar, this is slightly longer to sllow for swelling. When the piercing is healed, it is recommended you change the bar for a 6mm length bar.

Conch piercings will often be done with a 10mm, it is also advisory to reduce the length bar when healed to prevent the piercing twisting.

Tragus piercings and forward helix piercings may require a shorter bar but this depends on the thickness of your cartilage. Generally a 6mm bar should comfortably fit a healed tragus or forward helix piercing but a 4mm may be preferred or a small huggie.
