This necklace belonged to my mother and I really enjoy wearing it. The photo doesn't do it justice but it has a nice patina on it. I don't know where it is from but I always wondered if her brother gave it to her (the one that died during WW II). It is a good thing I am tall! It hangs down almost to my belt buckle. It makes a tinkling sound when I walk. I always tell the guys at work that they shouldn't be caught doing anything wrong since they can hear me coming!
