Having trouble identifying this piece of jewelry. Is it a religious piece or some else ?

 Thank You

Sorry, what did you expect? Why religious? It's not a rosario, I'm catholic, I know it, not 59 pearls, no cross. You could consider it stylewise  be Jugendstil, when necklaces were made a lot with these lower hanging drops, but as far as I can see the metal mounting looks to be later, it's not silver and the piece doesn't look fashionably jugendstylish. Chromed metal parts in costume jewellery came up in Art Déco, but this does not look very Art Déco either. Then you would have combined the transparent beads with black ones. A cut transparent glass bead isn't anything spectacular in itself, you can buy it by the dozen cheaply.

There has to be something very special about the design showing the epoch's style clearly, or be funny, opulent or colourful, which this is not. Only then it will have some value even as costume jewellery.
But anyway I recommand to google american costume jewellery by epoch names and find out about it yourself.
Besides, we are not a forum for jewellery, anyway hard to tell when one doesn't have the piece in hands.
