'Intaglio''' in jewellery, refers to incised (negative) image-making, and is the opposite of cameo.
It's used in making engraved seals, where it leaves a raised design on the material being stamped, especially wax.
It is also used in some pendants. A dramatic effect is a locket with a cameo and a matching intaglio.
