Charles Green was established in 1824. The company has remained in the hands of the Green family for six generations and, to this day, manufactures in Birmingham’s Jewellery Quarter. Over the last two hundred years Charles Green has become synonymous with quality, hand crafted, British Jewellery.
In the 18th century women of the upper class began wearing impressively carved cameo gemstones as a sign of wealth and prestige and Queen Victoria is credited with popularising shelled cameos during her reign. The 19th century also introduced a new type of cameo, those that were made from petrified lava. Coloured lava extracted from an archaeological dig at Pompeii was used for highly detailed carvings. Women during this time embarking on their "Grand Tours" often purchased lava cameos as mementos from their travels, which established the objects as a symbol of status and wealth.
