Nepalese Turquoise & Coral Pendant

 

Sorry, this charming pendant is no longer available.

An charming double sided Nepalese or Tibetan pendant, basically a brass pendant which has a panel of carved foliate silver on one side. 

Set into this on brass side is an old olive green Turquoise, a Lapis and two Old Red Corals.

On the reverse the carved silver has a single Red Coral framed with a mosaic of a fine line of tiny Turquoise chips. This Turquoise mosaic inlay is often used in Kasmiri work so there may be a North Indian link.

The combination of the two metals and the gentle colours of the chosen stone create a wearable subtlety.

Two more Corals have been set into the top of the suspension tube which has a 6 mm opening, that would allow the use of either a chain or cord for wear. (Simple threading would also suit it.)

It most probably was made by Tibetan refugee silversmiths now living in Nepal, but may easily be from further afield.

Age: Less than 10 years.

Size: H 84 mm x W 27 mm, hole  6 mm

Weight: 20 grams
