Story behind TAGLIAMONTE Cameos***
Nino and Lorena Tagliamonte, with two Venetian Artists,spent more than five years
researching archaeological and ancient Roman Glass processing techniques. After
numerous attempts, they rediscovered and successfully experimented with
original Roman blending, processing and casting methods.
They successfully renewed the Italian Jewelry Heritage that had
been lost for many centuries, and brought back a manufacturing style as old as
Mesopotamia. During this process, they recovered and collected a vast number of
ANCIENT molds, (over 3,000.... some as old as before the time of Christ), of
classical Greek/Roman Mythological micro sculptures, from antique shops all over the world. These became
the main source of inspiration in creating and designing exclusive jewelry
pieces. The company can produce Venice Cameo Gems identical to the antique
originals by following the Roman manual processing patterns and formulas. The
cameos are available in a variety of colors, though each is hand wrought with
incandescent glass and the exact color is established only when cooled.
Today, TAGLIAMONTEcan be considered the only manufacturer in the world for this kind of stone, Genuine
Each piece in the collection, is a handmade work of Art and Pure
Beauty. The designs feature expertly carved Venetian Cameos, and Embossed 14K
and 18K Gold Medallions that evoke images from a distant past, a kind of
seduction that belongs to another age.

Collectables from our distant past with magical
suit your style. This collection is perhaps the most recognized of all

transparent emotions from a precious uncontaminated world. This collectionwas
born fromNino and Lorena Tagliamonte'sloveof
the Ocean andit's Wondrous Creatures. The pieces are
composed of Venetian glass symbolic elements of naturalistic inspiration,which
Nino has revived and reinterpreted in delicate pastel colors.
Eros, Anteros, generators of vital movement: passion, Love and Sentiment.
The collection was dedicated to CUPID, EROS and Anteros, symbols that represent
the principle that keeps the world pulsing with vital movement and is the motor
of the universe. Cupid generates passion, Eros embodies the universal desires
that gave origin to the world. Anteros is the symbol of spiritual love. The
amorini are inspired by decorative elements on 18th century jewels.
The amorini are surrounded by a hand molded Venetian glass frame in pastel
translucent colors and backset with mother of pearl which creates a rich,
opulent but delicate sensation. They are enhanced by small diamonds placed on
the decorative swirls surrounding the figures.
sweet memory of those romantic times. Several mosaic techniques have been
adapted in Italy to the small size of jewelry, best known among them are the
so-called Roman micro mosaics. Our Venetian micro mosaics are labor intensive
compositions where infinitely small closely set elements are used to create
exclusive jewels that are part of the Italian heritage.
to the painter and the dreamers of Italian art.This collection represents a
revolution in the history of the TAGLIAMONTE design concept. The transformation
consists in an interpretation of a jewel no longer inspired by the classical
Greek-Roman mythological repertoire, but by an inspiration generated by
Renaissance painter Sandro Botticelli and particularly the enigmatic "La
Primavera" where a graceful maiden "Flora" represents the gentle
spring season and renewal.
The floral motifs in the painting are delicate both in form and
color tones and are said to be invigorated by "Zephyr's" light
refreshing breeze. The light metal structure, the evolutions and swirls that
support buds and flowers in Venetian glass miniature sculpting together with
pearls and pink tourmalines that softly enhance the scene are artistically
assembled to create a romantic feminine mood dedicated to Botticelli and the
lovers of his art.
The 6 approx 9mm Round Venetian Cameos are represented in
3 different Opaque Colors: 2 in Tomato Red which looks very much like a Red
Coral.; 2 in Aqua/Turqouise which are the color of Persian Turqouise; and 2 in
a Creamy Ivory, as a true "Ivory" color.These are all backset with Genuine Mother of Pearl. This
piece has several differntDepictions on the Cameos:
The Maypole Festival; The Harvest Festival; and Belliste, the first Woman
OlympianEquestrian and her Horse.
The Venetian Cameos are all bezel set in a Sterling
Silver with Rose Gold Plating in a High Polished finish. This has a decorative fixed bail,
of Sterling Silver with Rose Gold Plating,which has a line of beads/granulation that runs down the
center front. Set in the front center of the bail is a solid approx 4mm14K
Yellow Gold TAGLIAMONTE signature Rosette/Beaded Circle.

The international shipping of jewelry, as well as other items that
are termed "Valuable Articles", have a set of rules, guidelines and
restrictions that must be followed. These rules are set by both Countries
(shipping and receiving) involved. The rules include how the items are shipped,
and what type of service is required.
The 2 options, that apply for my jewelry sales, are 1) ship in
a small flat rate box WITH registered mail, no insurance available, or 2) ship
in a small box WITH insurance.The price difference is only an approx $1.00 to
$4.00 to have insurance, so this is the way that all of my packages will be shipped:
USPS Priority International Insured.
I realize that there are sellers out there who will ship items by
cheaper methods to save money. I assure you, if I could do this legally and
safely, I would be happy to do so. The rules are the rules and there is a
possibility that "penalties" or charges could be filed if you don't

do not make the rules, just follow them.
It is the responsibility of the buyer to pay these. I have no way of
knowing what these charges might be,
