necklace is beautiful & romantic object.
it's a proof of seriously relationship between 2 humans who fall in love.not just a gift.(different with a ring,of course!)
but in love affair,it can be bad news if revealed.it's a shame.
the risk of love affair is broken heart or loveless in heart.i think faithful feling is BIGGEST than anything else:):)
