On the other hand, the engraving technique called “Intaglio” is called “intaglio”. They are sometimes collectively called “cameos”, but the types of carving are different. Born about 6,000 years ago, it developed during the ancient Roman era and is still being produced today. It is a technique that makes use of the contrast between the colors and layers of minerals to make the beauty of the motif stand out.
At that time, they were worn not only as ornaments, but also as amulets and seals. The gems and motifs that are carved have changed over time, but it is said that by the time of ancient Rome, the shape had already remained the same as it is today. It has a long history as a work of art and as a decorative item.
