Maybe I'm reading this wrong. I'll ask someone else to look at it tomorrow.

I get 氓 meaning vagrant or ruffian. It can refer to people or a person, but generally-used for those who are down-on-their-luck.

I want to be wrong, as otherwise, this is the most strange thing I've ever seen as a necklace.
