I purchased a grab bag of jewelry today and found this necklace. It is a unique and odd piece and I have nicknamed it the Pimple Necklace. Usually the hallmark name makes it easy to identify the maker like Coventry, Trifari, Monet etc. This piece has a hallmark symbol with a jewel. I would appreciate any help with who makes it or if someone has antique-modern website(s) resource I will gladly look for it myself. Just not sure where to start.
That's not a Hallmark, but rather a Monogram or more technically the surname of the manufacturer, LOLA. Couldn't find their address but note that J C Penney sells their jewelry plus other retailers. There is a Lola Jewelry Design Co., in Dallas, TX.
Their jewelry is mostly paste. That should get you started in researching your rope necklace.
That style of chain link is referred to as a Snake Chain.
