Looking at it closely (your 'something in the necklace'), I thought I saw a cross. Then I remembered that Waite translated Strength as "those whose strength is God". He said it has nothing to do with regular self-confidence.

However, in the shorter interpretations that he gives in the back of The Pictorial Key to the Tarot, he renames the card Fortitude and goes along with it meaning "courage", "success", "honors", and so forth.
