    I'm not so sure if this is a necklace or other item. It belonged to my mom and was in her old jewerly box, it has a small hole on the upper part next to the stone which is fixed strong into this item. The measurment is 1- 1/2" by 1-1/2 inches. I'm just looking to find out if anyone knows anything about this item.

      Hey Misty, this is pretty, it looks like a carved/cut Shell with the Stone setting glued to it, maybe a size would help. It might be part of a larger piece, or missing pieces to it. I hope someone can help you out! :^)

      This object may have been a decorative part of a ladies’ belt buckle.
      Since MOP isn’t very strong, it would have had a rim of some other material like metal or wood. The tiny hole would have had a post thru the front and back sides of the trim material to stabilize the trim piece.
      The jewel which has been glued on may be covering up a blemish in the MOP caused by the metal prong of the buckle.
      Possibly someone took the buckle apart and saved the MOP thinking it could be reused/repurposed.
      That’s my best guess! :-)
