I bought this 16.5" aluminum necklace at the Pasadena City College swapmeet last month where I met up with our friend Shareurpassion. I'm not sure if it's as old as the 1950's - most likely 70's. Either way a beautiful and bright necklace. Needs some cleaning up - a few beads are pitted. I plan to restring it and add beads near the clasp to make this more comfortable to wear - 17 or 17.5". Cool old beads! I kick myself for selling 2 late 40's-1950's bracelets years ago. I didn't know they were special. One was a cuff made for a small wrist - definitely were the post WW2 "trench art" items.
