jewelry pirates would have

OKay, google hasnt been any help on this one. Every time i search i keep on getting necklaces with skulls such from modern day.

I have been working on a novel for a while and my main character has had a run in with pirates as a child. It is set around the 1600-1700, no exact date has been decided yet. When she was little she was given a necklace from a pirate. What kind of pendent or charm would be found on said necklace? I know pirates stole a lot of stuff from a lot of different places so if anyone has ever run across a page with different jewlry and such from back then it would be great if you could give me the link. Im looking for something unique that stands out.

The story doesnt revolve around this but I still need some kind of information.

Thanks in advance.

*edit*
I am aware that pirates stole everything they had basically. What I have been trying to look for is something that stands out, something that a pirate would have kept instead of using in trade to get something like rum or whatever. lol. But you all have been a big help so far. Keep 'em coming!

**EDIT...again**
Thank you all so much! You all gave me some great ideas and I actually decided to widen my plot line. This pendent is going to be more in the story now and I found a very interesting one I think I might use. You all were very helpful, thanks again. If anyone has any ideas they would like to share feel free but I am pretty sure I got this covered now. But I will always listen to more advice.
