For sale here is a wonderful vintage 1960s 70s handmade sterling silver pendant necklace that centers an antique 18K gold Thai standing Buddha statuette. The Buddha at center is an antique relic cast in solid 18K gold from Thailand, and the sterling silver pendant necklace was custom created to house the Buddha so that it could be worn by the previous owner who collected the statuette on a trip to Thailand. From what I understand, these miniature Buddha statues are very rare and revered by collectors of Buddhist antiquities. How wonderful to be able to wear one! The miniature Buddha measures about 1-5/8" tall by 1/2" wide, and sits in a specially made pendant created for it that measures 2-1/4" by 1-5/8" and which hangs from a torque neck-ring with inside circumference of 17". The necklace weighs 41.4 grams total, and I'm guessing that a substantial amount of that weight is from the Buddha statuette. The neck-ring is marked "925" for sterling silver, the pendant is unmarked, but I've tested all parts and guarantee it to be as described above. Excellent condition with just fine light wear though the miniature Buddha does have some accumulated grime from the years and could probably use a good cleaning, though I haven't touched it as some collectors prefer it that way - please view the photos, read the description, and ask all questions prior to purchase. I am open to reasonable offers from serious buyers.
