A Cameo Role

I confess to a love of pearls at the moment, I may be subconsciously pinning for the magnificent pearl necklace that was once my mother's: gorgeous real, baroque style pearls.
Since then and only recently have I made it my quest to find pearls that I love and so far so good! Real,cultured,baroque or Chanel....I am in pearl heaven.
I also went on a quest to purchase the perfect cameo. I was outbid the first time I spied a gorgeous 9ct gold and turquoise Edwardian cameo on Ebay. Not wanting to be had a 2nd time I hung tight and bought my delight.
The cameo pendant/brooch was taken to my jeweller and transformed into the ring of my current dreams...here it is next to my gorgeous Xmas present from my sister and her husband: a pearl sautoir from Tateossian
