Japan has long been known for quality workmanship. After World War 11..the factories which had been used for manufacturing armaments..were put to work making trinkets and items for export.Many marked Occupied Japan. This is a three strand teal plastic necklace.Some of the beads are frosted and some pearlized. Lovely condition the piece is marked Japan and will adjust to 19 inches. A quality necklace in a desirable yet hard to find color. I guarantee all my items for authenticity and will combine shipping on multiple orders.
