So sorry about your baby dog. What a wonderful tribute. Ok so now I better go back and look for Japan. I do have a pearl collar necklace that I know is vintage, it has a label on the underside which is fabric. The pearls are sewn on. I have a few Lisner earrings, and one set of Monet, but I think they are more recent. I also have some funky ones that look like Bakelite, just not sure. One necklace looks like jade, but really resembles Bakelite.
