Recently I rediscovered these two mysterious amulets in my drawers.
One I found out is a temple token, also called Ramatanka, likely bought on a pilgrimage (ca. 1.1 inches diameter, 12 grams).
The other looks like a rupee coin but is says "prize medal 1968" (1" diameter, 6 grams). Neither is high grade silver.
I would love to know more about this kind of coin jewellery!

I found myself thinking of this photo as a result of the fact that we are today celebrating 55 years of being a married couple: the photo is NOT today's, but (a) it shows us as only a slightly younger couple, and (b) there is a lot of green here, which will have to do as a substitute for an emerald that we neither own nor will buy as yet, being in our 80s. This is not to suggest any animosity towards emeralds - far from it. But we have in essence ceased collecting. Also, it is the quality of the marriage that counts: the period suggests a wedding based on devotion, loyalty and adoration. Quite so - all far more important than expensive stones.
