WWII Italy Cameo necklace

by Donn

My uncle was in Italy during WWII and bought his sister a shell or mother of pearl cameo necklace and bracelet. The necklace has three large cameos and the bracelet has 5 smaller cameos they are set in a soft silver colored metal and it has always been impossible to wear as the metal is so soft the link pulls apart. The cameos are all different in exact size and thickness. I saw one on ebay one time but can't find any other. I am thinking about using the small ones to make necklaces for each of my girls as a rememberance. Just want more info on it. Anything would help. By the way my mother is 86 and only know that her brother brought it to her while in Italy.
