The name of this jewelry clasp?
is the clasp in the back?
What you're describing sounds like a very special kind of Bail. A bail is used as a decorative piece, and it can open up to allow the charm or pendant to hand off of it but I've never heard of a bail actually locking a necklace in place. (If that's what your saying)
