Dear Sumaiya, this looks like a very special example of a chin chain. I found 2 other examples but they are not so elaborate as yours. I believe they are found in the area of north Oman. Is that correct?

that is true Dear Thelma there are different designs of the chin chain also some can make from wool only the 2 parts near the ears can made from silver
