vintage necklace discovery



I discovered this necklace on the Internet, described as 1930s but alas, has HONG KONG blatantly stamped on the back! So maybe its from 1980s, never mind, i thought, i looooove it! (I love anything for £6.50!)
I like the idea that its between a collar and a necklace, basically making even a t-shirt look rather fetching. I'm already going through all my clothes (in my head like a flicker book) that this will go with.
Its made of tiny white iridescent beads, and has a great button clasp at the back. Rather tricky to photograph the back of one's own neck, I found out.
So, another piece of 80s get-up comes to surprise me, whatever next? a shell suit?
