Antique necklace with a central medallion with coral.
Such collar necklaces are seen in the Skurbuchan area of Ladakh
Solid (not hollow) and heavy piece.
The central medallion is gorgeous and finely crafted and the coral that sits within is about 1cm in diameter.
The little serrated maple-leaf-like hanging pieces are very well made.
Will make a superb conversation piece when worn!
This piece embodies the history and the cultural magnificence of Ladakh!!
Estimated to be from the early 1900s
