from: Carol Westfall Barnes: “Here are 3 of my cameos. The large one with the diamond in the middle was found in 1928 by my mother when she was about 3 years old. All the girls in our family now wear them on their wedding dresses. The ring was a custom made ring in 1970 by a family jeweler .”
from: Vicki Lynn Geisler-Cleghorn: “This was my mom’s. She was born in 1919. I remember her wearing it to church when I was a kid (I’m 55). It’s mounted on wood, but the cameo is a type of plastic. The chain is a type of plastic, too. Does anyone know anything about cameos like these?”
