I am posting this under "Mystery". I found this very long amulet style necklace in a thrift store. It is of very good quality. It has a heavy decorated box chain and a central piece of red resin or plastic that bears a gold tone X or cross on it. Beads dangle from the chain and there is what looks like a Canadian one cent coin dated 1953 in the middle of the dangles. One side says "Regina Elizabeth Dei Grata" (if I am reading it correctly) and bears the image of the Queen. This makes me wonder if it might be commemorating her coronation in 1953.
The back of the red piece has a little mirror or piece of polished metal. I would love to know who the maker is. It looks like something that Vivian Westwood or Alexander McQueen might have made for the runway (don't I wish!). Anyone have a clue for me? Thanks for reading this far!
