Hell,I am Dr. Aren and I will help with your query.It appears that there is probably Contact Dermatitis with some element of the necklace which is causing this rash.It would be prudent to avoid wearing this necklace as contact dermatitis can cause problems which may be life long.LOcal steroid creams are the treatment of choice ,oral antihistamines may help.Avoidance would be the best option for any such jewelry .

I take 100 mg of minocycline a day for acne. Could that be the cause?

If it would be a drug reaction,it would not be localised to the neck and chest,highly unlikely to be drug related.

I feel better already! Thank you.

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.
