Description
 
A very large turquoise and silver pendant, typically used to adorn the head or headress of a woman, however, it could quite easily be worn as a stand alone pendant or a focal pendant on a necklace. The turquoise has a large crack running through the centre which probably happened before the bead was set into the silver. The owner obviously thought the piece was beautiful even with the crack and so do we. It also shows that even damaged pieces of turquoise were highly valued in Tibet. It is very heavy and securely set into the silver. The back of the pendant is made from copper. A lovely old piece with a great feel and full of character.

Origin: Collected in Tibet in the 1980s and part of the Stone Routes Collection.
