Ethnic Jewels

An appreciation of ethnic jewellery and adornment

I just purchased this lovely silver bracelet, which I suspect *may* be an "Aswareh Habbiyat" Palestinian bracelet, as it's similar in design to others crafted in Nablus, Palestine.  It is hallmarked 90% silver.  It almost appears to have stylized fish in the design. Can any of you help me identify the origin of it?  Lots of granulation and beautiful scrollwork.  I LOVE it!  It might also be Yemeni or Omani in origin, but I am definitely leaning towards Palestinian.
