Yes, I know about the Circassian because I worked in Jordan for a number of years. Can you tell me, did you buy this in Karak? I have been there a couple of times, but spent most of my time in Amman.

Dear Edith and Nawang,
Many thanks for your comments.
Yes, Edith, there is a Circasian community living in Jordan since a very long time. They were among others selected as guards for the King... such authentic pieces are now very rare and difficult to find. When I come across such beauties, I buy them immediately...
Dear Nawang, I am not selling my jewelry...
With kind regards and best wishes.
Peter

Oooo, I have been searching for one of these for years....lucky you!  Probably made by a Circasian silver smith.  Mabrouk!

Dear Betty; Many thanks for your comment. Such original high quality necklaces are extremely rare to find and if found, they are extremely expensive. There are copies though...

I cannot keep up with all the beauties you have posted Peter - they are all gorgeous. I love this one particularly, though!
