Not so sure about the fashion for this thimble in 1947

but this is what my Mom and Dad wore that year.

And this concludes the "Women and Fashions of the Avon Thimbles."

I found these 2 pieces of jewelry in my Mom's stuff a while back and thought I would try to take a picture of it. I don't remember her ever wearing either of these. The necklace is kinda interesting, but I didn't try to put it on yet. Sorta like a pearl (not real) collar.

Cameos were popular once upon a time. I forget if they were popular in the 50's or 60's.....

That pearl necklace is beautiful. Your mom and dad made for a cute couple.

That's a beautiful necklace. It would look great on a plain dark dress.

You have some wonderful pictures of your Mam & Dad.

The pearl necklace/collar was probably worn with a sweater that had no neck, so it made the sweater look like it had a collar. Cameo's are always in style, I think. I have about four of them, gifts from different daughters. None are really old like an antique. Have a great evening.

That cameo is gorgeous!!! I love it. How fun to see some of your, or your mom's, jewelry..more!!

I swear, we all have photos that look like the one you posted of your mom and dad, same poses, same clothes. There is something about seeing others' photos, it's like looking into ones' own box of memories.

After reading your latest post, I remembered I was going to make a comment on the pearl necklace collar and got interrupted and just remembered now about it. But, I see Patty already explained about it. So you aren't the only one who is forgetful. lol
