Cameo jewelry is one of the hottest fashion trends for spring and summer 2011, and models were seen on the runway wearing a variety of cameo styles. Cameos used to be considered rather quaint and old fashioned; however, today’s cameo jewelry is more modern than the cameos you’d find in your grandmother’s jewelry box. Celebrities and fashion designers have really embraced the cameo jewelry trend, and traditional cameos have been updated in a lot of creative ways this season.
You can pay a lot for authentic hand carved cameo jewelry or shop for more affordable costume cameos, but whatever your budget, there is a cameo perfect for you. Here are a few places to buy cameo jewelry under $100.
