Ethnic Jewels

An appreciation of ethnic jewellery and adornment

Hi I wonder if anyone could help, I’ve recently tested this piece thinking it was silver but it tests as a high carat gold? It had markings on the necklace which I cannot make out, does anyone know anything about this particular type of jewellery

Hi jaqui

Great to hear from you. Can you please post some more photos of the necklace as it is hard to see as your profile pic as its very small.

Many thanks

Cordelia

Hi Cordelia

Hi Jacqui, I would say that this is Indian and fairly contemporary. Those twists on the dangles are very Indian as well as the general design. Amazing that it is gold! Ive seen similar in silver and metal. I will get some other opinions though. Yes, all other opinions say India. It seems a very common style and often in low metals so I am very surprised it tests as gold. Are you sure about this?
