Can you date a cameo by the hairstyles? I have looked at hundreds of cameos without seeing one that resembles mine.

I have no idea where I got these cameo earrings. They appear to be crudely made, have screw-type backs, the metal parts are irregular and very tarnished. Both earrings show a lady with her hair in three rolls at the back of her head, a bare shoulder, and something draped across the other shoulder. Her nose looks Roman or, maybe straight. They face opposite directions. The screw clasp is in the shape of a flower. Anything you can tell me about them is greatly appreciated.
