"This is a bracelet with a rather wide open part. For a open bracelet from oman (most are closed) 7/8  or 2.2 cm is quite normal, for Western people this is rather small. The jingling sound of the bracelets are made by little stones or scrap…"

"I would say Oman and Baluchi since the Baluchi in Oman have a great influence on the silver jewelry produced their."

"Sorry I changed the photo on the Egyptian bracelet because it was too dark to see the chain. Here is a better one: http://ethnicjewels.ning.com/photo/b101-5"

"Hi Ingrid, Yes I think that the 1970s is when it stopped being made. Too hard to make I would guess. Here is a link to photos I've just posted for the same type of chain from…"

"Hello Frankie, To my knowledge, this is no longer made. The "youngest" pieces are from the 1970s."

"Yes these are faceted carnelians and the work is usually Egyptian. This type of chain is also found in Syria and Palestine."

"Of what stone are the translucent facetted beads - carnelian? That type of chain is often used for redesigning, incorporating older beads. The fancier silver beads could be Yemeni Bawsani work."

Kymm...

here are some very rare examples from my own collection- they are all from the 1800s probably early- they used to get confused with carved Jet but in fact the material is the shell of a palm nut called "Acrocomia Aculeata" - confirmed by the head expert at Kew -Royal Botanical Gardens in London. They have a slight relationship to the family of the coconut.

They are very shiny but also hollow and are a slightly flattened round shape, most are approximately 1" or 25mm across, and found in the tropical areas particularly in South America. there's a suggestion that the designs may commemorate historic events as the scratched-on motifs include flags that might be the British Union Jack, and the harp, the shamrock, the thistle and the rose are British national symbolic plants. Pine trees and tulips can also be noticed. We dont yet know if this was art created where the palms grow by homesick sailors or prisoners of war, or made by local natives...

I rubbed talcum powder on the surfaces to make the designs easier to see- otherwise its all dark. 

on one of the pieces there are 3 inlays of silver-coloured metal- 

will show another image-

My Business name is Ocean Eyz Jewelry! I've been in business (buying, selling & collecting) for 20yrs now! I'm In Warmen's 3rd edd, By my late friend Christie Romero, with about 100 pieces & in a few others with just a few pieces. I have gained a lot of knowledge of many types of jewelry since then, & have a library of about 500 books to go through, when investigating! Can never have too many books, will be getting more soon!

I think this site is Wonderful for ethnic, tribal & such jewelry. To help one another in figuring out where , who & what it is.... Where we can help one another!
