vintage amco cameo pendant pin

This vintage AMCO cameo pin or brooch also has a swivel loop to wear as a pendant. Just beautiful! Love the twisted rope design! Not to mention the carved shell with the Three Graces!

A. Micallef & Co. Inc. was founded in 1919 in Providence, RI producing AMCO costume jewelry. The company produced lines of costume jewelry with designs resembling fine quality jewelry, bezel set in sterling silver, gold filled and gold plated metals using rhinestones and other imitation stones, simulated gemstones and cultured and faux pearls. Their jewelry, elegant and classic in designs of necklaces, bracelets, earrings, cameo brooches, pendants and rings, has the quality of Krementz with finishes not wearing off and said to have held up through the years. Marks: “STERLING AMCO“, “1/20 12K Gold Filled AMCO“, “20 12K G.F. AMCO”, “AMCO 14K GF”. AMCO costume jewelry has never been cheap and is sought after by collectors. The A. Micallef company ceased operations in the late 1970’s.

This cameo is stamped with 'sterling+ 1/20 10K AMCO' on the back, inside top of the silver.

Many people mistakenly associate these three mythological figures with the Christian concept of Faith, Hope and Charity. The correct concept of this lyrical cameo, the "Three Graces", is of the Greek interpretation of Aglaia (Splendor), Euphrosyne (Mirth), and Thalia (Good Cheer).

The whole cameo measures just under 1 and 3/4 of an inch tall. 1 and 3/8 inches wide.

Locking mechanism works well. Tiny bend in the pin metal.

This will ship priority with insurance.

Contact me for shipping outside the U.S. Plan on adding insurance for out of country deliveries.
