    This is a a very unusual necklace. The pendant can be turned around, using the very strange mechanism connecting it to the rest of the chain. The necklace and the chain are embellish with abalone inlay. There are no marks whatsoever.

    The necklace cleaned up like sterling but I am not sure about it.
    It has a modern feel; maybe around the 1970's?

    My first guess was that it could be Mexican but I have never seen something like this before.

    Thanks for looking:)

      Just gorgeous, never seen one like this, but it looks Mexican. The links are pretty great too. Not sure of age - I think it's older than 70's. Love it!

      Thanks so much for your comment, TassieDevil:)
    9. freiheit freiheit, 5 years ago
      Kyratango, I agree, the system is really cool. It somehow reminds me of mid-century modern Scandinavian jewelry - but the finishing looks really Mexican to me LOL
