2. Is there any special care required?
The cameos are made from shell, an organic material, and depending on the environment and humidity where they are kept, may lose some of their natural luster when stored for long periods. To prevent this, we recommend once or twice a year, using plain baby oil rubbed lightly over the cameo with your fingers or a soft cloth or tissue. Let the oil remain for a few minutes or so, and then remove the excess with a clean dry cloth, and you’re done. When wearing cameos, remember to treat them as you would pearls. Avoid hairspray, perfume, etc. coming in direct contact. It is better to use the spray or perfume first, then put on your cameo jewelry.
