I know this might be a stupid question, but what is a Netsuke? It looks great either way!

Its a sort of japanese carved ivory ,wood or gemstone bead that hangs from an inro cord and looped over the belt (obi) of a kimono. best way to explain its a toggle bead

But I didnt pay any attention to traditional forms.
