This antique ethnic tribal Hansuli neck ring is from the Rajasthan area of India. These were worn by tribal men and women as ornamentation, status symbol, and for protection. A woman could establish the wealth of her family by wearing such a neck ring.

This Hansuli is solid sterling silver, circa 1900. It was tested via jeweler's x-ray machine and also acid tested. It weighs over 7 ounces...199 grams.

The rigid torque is heavily carved around three sides. The design is almost Modernist in its exacting pattern.

The inner measurement end-to-end is 12.5 inches. The opening is 2.5 inches. The total circumference is 15 inches around. The ring is 1/2 inch wide and 3/8 inch thick. Since women who wore these were smaller in size than today's woman, this opening is too small for most of us to get through. The solid ring has no flex...it doesn't bend. This can only be worn by a woman with a small neck. Once on, it fits perfectly...it's getting through the opening that's a challenge. Another way to wear this could be to add a sturdy chain to the ends and use this ring as a massive pendant.

This is an old museum quality tribal necklace...heavy, important, beautiful. Solid sterling silver.
