    Heavens, what a stunning piece, Paul! I hope you and your daughter noticed one of the end dangles needs the loop adjusted to be most secure, an easy fix with pliers, otherwise it might fall off.

    The Zuni Silver necklace is just wonderful. Lucky daughter, and I bet she loved it.

    This is an old thread, but I had to add my mother used to collect cameos. This has always been a favorite of mine when I think of the Pearl Cameo Combo:

    Paul ! Omg you do have the eye ! That cameo is gorgeous, I love the gold work. And the necklace ! What a find ! Your daughter must have just about fainted when she saw it !
    You are right , it's a lot easier to do as a hobby than as a business. I don't know how people can let things go ..I would want to keep everything. I have enough trouble letting go of my pearls lol I had to take a selection of things out to a client and each one I put in the bad ..it was like .." oh ..I don't think she'd want this ...maybe I'll keep it ...this one ...oh no ...not that one ...oh ..I ve only got five of those ....hmmm maybe she doesn't really need pearls ... I have to force myself to let go of each item lol But I like your saying keep the best ... good thinking ..I'll work on the "letting go the rest " part.

    My mother used to collect cameos as well, in England, during the 1960s when they were out of style. She has a fabulous collection and she always wore one on her lapel with a strand of pearls. I copied her style.

    Then I had my dog collar made in the 1980s, because I was a complete Diana fan.

    I love that the cameo lady on the right is wearing a strand of pearls.

    I think these are beautiful and they look great. Even more so now I think.

    Sometimes ladies wear pearls and the look is pretty. Then there comes a time when ladies wear pearls and they are not only pretty, but there is an elegance and polish to the look. To me that is where you are, and NOTHING is wrong with that at all. Hopefully that made sense and I hope you wear them often?

    There are cameos and then there are CAMEOS! These cameos are intricate and beautifully carved! You can really appreciate the artistry in each piece.

    This is not mine and there are no pearls. I have had the pleasure of handling this for a friend, and I have coveted ever since.

    **If you do a google search for Amethyst Cameo you can see a much better picture from an Antique dealer

    Ooooo, amethyst PURPLE and cameo. Wonderful.

    I'm a huge fan of the Swedish Cameo tiara, too, but I can't seem to post a photo of it.

    Thanks, BPD for your comments about my dog collar. I'm going to wear it tonight! We're celebrating Chanukah at my parent's house tonight because everyone was at their in-laws for Christmas and Chanukah was the exact same time last year. We're a multi religion family and we celebrate every holiday that brings joy and people together, even if we can't celebrate on the exact day we'll find a way to celebrate.
