My aunt Lois was in a picture with Lucille Ball called The Fullerbrush Girl, at which time she was given this necklace by Miss Ball. My aunt recalled Miss Ball saying that she had bought it while on vacation and that she did not care how it made noise when she wore it. By this, I presume she meant the sound of the metal jingling when she wore it...'' With the letters ''G / M'' engraved to verso of center turquoise piece. Necklace measures 10'' in diameter.
