    by TRimer Updated Jul 1, 2005

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Camo, a coral and cameo factory in Ravello, sells jewelry from simple to overwrought, crafted from shells and coral. Mr. Camo, the owner, carves the cameos himself. Also check out his collection of judaica. Hillary Rodham Clinton is among those who have dropped by.

    Behind the shop is the town Museo dei Corallo, with some elaborate and antique coral concoctions on exhibit. it has been founded in 1986 and collects coral manufactured from the Roman Age up to the last century. In addition to cameos, inlaid pearl works and shells, all done in the centuries by the local craftsmen are displayed. Rare items displayed include a 17th-century coral crucifix, a Madonna figure dated 1532, a 3rd-century AD Roman amphora with a coral formation inside, and 14 cherubs dated between the 18th- and the 19th century.

    What to buy: Cameos of course.

    Da Lena Cose Belle: Ceramics

    by TRimer Updated Jul 1, 2005

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Made in Ravello

    This shop has some of the most beautiful ceramics that I found anywhere on the coast. The shopkeeper bragged that many US movie stars, including Susan Sarandon and Jim Belushi, had made purchases here.

    What to buy: I bought a soap dish, wine stoppers and a jewelry box for my sister. They have many of the designs you would expect including the rooster, lemons and geometrics.

    Ceramiche d'Arte: Our most prized possession from Ravello

    by guell Updated Jan 19, 2003

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    our plate

    This is the best ceramic shop that we encountered in our Italy travels. The shop had an excellent variety of locally handcrafted plates, bowls, cups, pots and vases, to name a few. The ceramics at this shop are not cheap but the quality you’ll get is incomparable. They probably would not like me to say this but a bit of bartering seemed acceptable at the time. It's worth a shot!

    What to buy: There are endless types and styles for everyone's tastes.

    What to pay: In 2001, a 14 inch plate was selling for about about $250 plus shipping. We had our plate shipped back home via air mail. It made it home safely a couple of days after we did!
