MEN'S SILVER RING

  I normally don't sell men's rings but when I saw this one I had to have one for myself, thought you might like one too. These babies are "dead on", you can bet that in the next few years they will start to turn up at relic shows being sold for originals. They are solid silver, not plated or washed copper. They come in all the normal men's sizes and can be sized by your local jeweler. The shield design gives ample room for any type of engraving you might like. I'm having a square and compass put on mine but you could have your regt. # and company letter or even your initials, how about an infantry horn or crossed sabers? This is a great ring at a great price. It's a perfect gift and just in time for Santa!

CAMEO


  Who doesn't love Cameos? You can't even mention the word without visualizing some romantic figure from the past with a beautiful cameo pined to her collar or blouse. Our cameos are available with either a silver or gold finish backing. Of course the figure is white and we have 5 background colors. Black, Light Blue, Green, Pink or Shell which has a orange hue. They fasten by means of a pin with safety latch. Yes I know safety latches are not period correct but the likelihood of you losing your cameo should you not have one is just too great. Some compromises are necessary. They measure two inches tall by 1.5 inches wide.
  A wonderful compliment for any outfit. The Dec. Jan. 2007 Citizen's Companion has a nice little article on Cameos that you might enjoy. Also the book, "Daily Life in the Civil War" has a little Cameo article. Should you be fortunate enough to own a copy of "Maggie Lindsey's war Journal" you will notice that the dated photo of Maggie (1864) shows her wearing a very large cameo.   I'm sure that you will enjoy our Cameos. They are well made and not so expensive that you would lose sleep should one be misplaced. Do they look just like the originals? No, the only way to do that is to buy an original. But short of that I think you'll be very happy with ours.

NEWS FLASH!

CLICK THE PHOTO FOR A LARGER VIEW

  Well well well, would you look at this. A beautiful young girl, and what's that she's wearing? A cameo you say? That's not that unusual. The accepted standard for this style cameo is 1864. But there in lies the problem. Here is the "modern" style cameo in a Ruby Dag. which would be sort of unusual in 1864 wouldn't you say? Most people agree that this type of dag. faded out before the war even started. And if that's not bad enough it's in a Gutta Percha case patented 1857. Now take a look at that dress material. That pattern was popular in 1850-55, not 1864. And how about that head dress? Again, 1855.
  Makes you wonder don't it.
    I recently purchased this from Raphael of "Road Show" fame. If we can turn up any more info on this I'll post it here for you.

MORE CAMEOS

  After we introduced our "1864" Cameos, a lot of you called or e mailed and ask if there were any cameos that would be correct for earlier time periods. Thanks to your "gentle prodding", we went to work to see if we could find any of the earlier designs.
  As it turns out we had a friend, who used to live next door to a guy, who's sister's old boss, well -- you get the picture.
WE FOUND THEM!

  We now have 3 new styles that are correct for early war. Notice I did not say that they are exactly as the originals. They are of the same style. Very similar.

  Starting at the far left we have "The Huntress & Hound". Available with a black or brown background. In the center we have "Spring", it is available with a "shell" colored background only. On the far right we have "Lovers", available with a black background only.

SPANISH CROSS

  This beautiful Pewter Cross is one of my favorite designs. Very "Olde World". It shows definite signs of Spanish/Italian influence. This really is a timeless piece of jewelry. Popular in the new world from the 15 Century on. Crosses of this design has been recovered from almost every shipwreck found along the Florida Coast. And it has retained it's popularity throughout the Victorian age as can be seen in many photos of the period.
  It measures 2 inches tall by 1.75 inches wide. My supply is limited and I'm not sure if I will be able to get anymore of them.
  HEADS UP GUYS, This is a great last minute gift for anyone.
