Show and Tell Friday

I am joining Cindy from My Romantic Home for her first Show and Tell Friday. I always loved show and tell as a child, so I'm sure I'll be loving it again now. I'm so excited to share with you my cameo's. I love cameo's. This first one was my grandmother's. It can be worn as either a brooch or as a necklace. I really don't know how old this beautiful piece is, but my "nana" died in 1984 at the age of 84 and I know she had it for years. I would imagine it's at least 60 years old, if not more.



This second cameo is a ring that I bought for myself when I was working at a jewelry store shortly after high school so this ring is pretty darn old also!! I bought it to wear on my index finger as I always loved the look of a large ring on that finger. It's interesting how this ring and my grandmothers brooch are very similar.



This last cameo I bought through a catalog just a couple of years ago. I usually wear it with a white lace top and it always looks so pretty.


Be sure to visit other participants in Show and Tell Friday and let us all recapture our show and tell youth as we gaze upon everyone's pretties. Thanks for stopping by!! Leave me a comment so I can visit you too!

Those are beautiful! I thought about showing my cameo today too and mine also has a necklace. I looked for it quickly but couldn't find it so I decided to skip it for this week! Thanks for joining in on my first day hosting Show and Tell!

Your cameo's are lovely. And they are really very special. While I was at a large Antique Fair this past week I saw a number of them & they had a good price attached. Since these are family pieces they are more special.

I love your cameos, Joyce. I used to have one a zillion years ago but it was no way near as nice as yours.

Your cameos are lovely. I have a few which I love, but for some reason seldom wear. I will have to start wearing them more often -- they are such sentimental jewelry speaking of an earlier, gentler time.

Joy said...

Those cameos are gorgeous. Classic. They never go out of style!

p.s. Thanks so much for stopping by last week on my SITS feature day!
