condition
by: Renee

My cameo is in good condition. The silver part needs a good polishing but the stone is unremarkable. I do appreciate all the info. I am unable to locate this particular cameo art work. Has anyone seen this piece before. If so how old do you think it is?

JW & Wedwood
by: Doris

if it's marked "JW", this indicates it's Wedgwood's own jewelry-making company.
The condition of the cameo is really important when valuing a piece. Is it in good condition? Regards Doris

Why Jasper Ware?
by: Anonymous

In 2001 Wedgwood launched a collaboration with designer Jasper Conran which started with an iconic white fine bone china collection and has since expanded to include seven patterns.

Wedgwood Information
by: Anonymous

Strictly speaking Josiah Wedgwood and Sons, is a pottery firm owned by KPS Capital Partners, a private equity company based in New York City, USA.

Wedgwood was founded on May 1, 1759 by Josiah Wedgwood and in 1987 merged with Waterford Crystal to create Waterford Wedgwood, an Ireland-based luxury brands group. After the 2009 purchase by KPS Capital, Wedgwood became part of a group of companies known as WWRD, an acronym for "Wedgwood Waterford Royal Doulton." Wedgwood is still used as a generic term to describe the company's main products.

In March 2009, KPS Capital Partners announced it would invest €100m and move jobs to Indonesia to cut costs and return the firm to profit. In a move that had begun under the previous owners, some 1,500 jobs were cut in the U.K., leaving a few hundred workers in the U.K. producing only the high-end Wedgwood products.

Josiah Wedgwood
by: Anonymous

Hi Renee

Josiah Wedgwood (1730-95) was the founder of pottery works at Etruria, village (built for his workmen) near Stoke on Trent, England; hence, ware made at this factory especially fine porcelain with small cameo reliefs in white paste on a tinted matt ground like your ring; a blue shade of blue is characteristic of Wedgwood ware. JW would be the initials of Josiah Wedgwood, founder.

Best Wishes,
Yvonne
