FENTY Immortalizes the Beauty of African Women With Cameo Jewelry Collection

Rihanna modernizes the traditional cameo brooch.

Rihanna‘s FENTY is back at it with a new range of jewelry inspired by the history and significance of traditional cameo pins. The collection subverts the historically European roots of cameo jewelry and features the profile of African woman as its centerpiece. The pieces celebrate the cameo as an emblem of fearlessness, creativity and joy — FENTY’s brand tenants. An accompanying campaign, shot by Nigerian photographer Ruth Ossai with elaborate sculptural hairstyles by Isaac Poleon, features a powerful cast ranging in age.

Cameos in black resin and white glass come in earring, necklace, brooch and ring form. Framed with both Swarovski pearls and crystals, the cameos are set in gold-galvanized brass. Each piece, sculpted from relief, is meant to be passed down through generations.

The Cameo collection ranges in price from $340 to $530 USD and can be purchased on the FENTY website.
