    I have the exact same necklace. Was a gift to my mother-in-law from my father-in-law. Assume he purchased it while serving in the Navy in Japan.

    Watch out, as there is a lot of fake Cinnabar out there. Usually a form of plastic. Do the hot needle test to see if you get a plastic smell. This one looks fancy and less likely to be "fake". It is a popular design in Asia and I don't think it is worth more than 200 dollars...BUT I am not a jeweler nor an appraiser.
    I love it and want one too.
