324 Old Indian Silver Locket Ornament Jewelry with Cultural Significance

Locket with the Image of the Goddess embossed upside-down.

This locket is a sign of marital status - but not an ordinary marriage.

The upside down version is special!

It is worn by the second wife when a widower remarries.

This small locket acts as an instrument of non-verbal communication!

Rajasthan,

Mid-1900s
