This necklace has been in the store for some weeks. Several times I looked at it but didn't buy it because of the clasps. The necklace has the cheapest lobster claw clasp you can imagine. It is strung on some kind of fishing line. The last time I went to the store, I took some time to examine the necklace carefully. I checked for the weight, the sound, and the smell. For $3 Canadian, I took my chances.
When I came home, I tested the necklace and it tested positive for Bakelite.
As it is now, the necklace is a bit over 32 inches long and weighs 92 grams. I will look for a more fitting clasp and re-string it, making it look more its age.
Thanks for looking:)
