    I love Cameos; I just don't know a lot about them. The single one is about 2 1/2 inches long. The two others are about 1 1/2 inches long. Thank you, in advance for anything I could learn about them.

      All 3 are carved from helmet shell, which goes by a number of names in the cameo world, including cameo shell & carnelian shell, for the similarity of color with the stone carnelian.

      Judging by the findings- jewelry speak for the hardware, the hinge, clasp & pin - these date to approx. the 1930s.

      Bouquets of flowers are just pretty, of course, but can also signify friendship. The 2 ladies are a little out of focus but both appear to be Psyche:
