Weekly Wish

This week I've been browsing on ebay for a lovely brooch and I know exactly what I want, unfortunately, to have a proper one they appear to cost a lot of money :( booo

Anywho, the brooch I want is a Cameo, and they look a little like this:

I really think that they are just so pretty and would look lovely on a bit of faux fur or on a pretty blouse! Wherever you decide to pin your cameo you can guarantee that is going to look just a tad classy :)

If anyone is feeling particularly generous and would like to buy me one I would be more than happy to accept your lovely gift :)



  1. I like the skull cameos... there's a girl who makes them into necklaces and earrings at the Gallery I had pictures of this weekend. So cute and only $25. If Christmas wasn't coming up I would have bought one.

  2. I love it and your blog is gorgeus!!

  3. Thank you for the lovely comment, dear! :))
    I loveeee Cameo brooches too! I wanted one since I saw Miroslava Duma wearing a similar brooch. And after one year I finally found one for a very reasonable price from Bijou Brigitte. I hope this info is helpful!


  4. My Grandma has a vast collection of Cameos and some she's picked up at junk fairs etc for stupidly small prices and they've been real after valuing so if you keep your eyes open you should be able to pick up one really easily! She also has some replicas that are still super nice and cost just pence. They are so nice though :)


  5. I love these, they are so beautiful. I can definitley see them looking amazing on some (faux) fur. I have one friend i've wanted to buy one for for ages, so let me know if you find any online that arent to dear. Lizz xx

  6. Hi! Thank you so much for your comment on my post, I'm so happy to have found your beautiful blog! I've been wanting a cameo brooch for so long, I've got a 'fake' one but I'd really love one of the delicate shell ones, they're so elegant. I'm looking for writers of beautiful blogs to swap blog badges with so we can help each other out with promotion - let me know if you'd be interested? Hx

  21. I adore anything vintage and cameos look so classy and prestigious. One of my favorite jewelry companies has some cameo pieces you might want to check out. They aren't actually vintage of course but they're great replicas!

    Cheers! x
