For your consideration is this cute and interesting Mexican necklace. It has two large sectional abalone, enamel and alpaca cats at the center. The abalone has wonderful color range. The necklace is marked Mexico 925. It does not test as sterling and I believe it is alpaca. This happened sometimes with Mexican jewelry. It is an adorable piece. It has an old hook closure.
The necklace measures 15 and 1/2 inches around and is meant to wear high on your neck. The cat sections measure 6 inches across - 3 inches each.
The necklace is in excellent functional condition. All shell secure with none missing. It does have an uneven patina that has picked up a little color. I will be glad to clean if requested.
