The representation of the face is a classic theme in the history of jewelry and most often takes the form of a cameo, a stone engraved in relief.

A perfect oval with pure lines, sometimes heightened with a diamond on the forehead, and with eyes closed to add a strange touch, as if it’s in deep meditation.
