This is a very beautiful & very old piece of necklace. It was bought by the boutique owner in some very outback village perhaps along some borders between Cambodia & Thailand in one of her travels, & the boutique owner said that one could only get to that village on foot. Most likely, that could be the last few pieces left in that village. Wow!
The necklace is made of 3 centre pieces, with two triangular metal pieces with intricate & gorgeous detailing, held by metal links & there are interesting metal coins with Arabic inscriptions. Exquisite & rare I dare say!

This is an out of this world necklace with big Serpentine beads. The beads are unique in that they are cut not in the usual flat manner but curved beautifully to catch the light & give that stunning effect. The colour & markings are captivating. This is definitely a one of a kind conversation piece.
