Red Crowned Crane
Goldfish with pond weed
Grapes with leaves and tendrils
Gourd vines with blossoms, leaves, fruit
Peaches and blossoms
Clasp is stamped "Silver" and "Made In China"
My current hypothesis is that necklaces such as this were made circa late 50s - early 70s for Chinese women, possible the well-to-do in Hong Kong, the Cultural Revolution perhaps making the wearing of jewels such as these hazardous in the People's Republic.
