It's a work of Middle Eastern folk art. This vintage necklace is made with Iranian coins, bits of colored glass, hand-forged silver-tone dangles and beads...all affixed to a piece of black cotton cloth with a button and hole closure.

The necklace is large, measuring 17 inches around by 4 inches long. It weighs 150 grams.

One of the coins features the King of Iran (Mohammad Reza Shah Pahlavi) who ruled Iran from 1941 until his overthrow by the Islamic Revolution in February 1979. This necklace was made during his reign.

The necklace reflects the typical ethnic woman's jewelry, worn as part of an every day costume and elaborately crafted. The silver-tone metal is both cast and engraved. Details like the coin connectors are bent over and display rosettes that are hand engraved.

The red, green and blue glass stones are encircled on top of the coins. A couple of the stones are missing but can be taken from the verso side where there are some more of them. Personally, we would not replace the stones as we think it adds something to the character of the necklace to leave it as found.

The dangles make a great sound as they collide...sounds like jingle bells. Please note that while our trusty manikin does a great job at modeling this vintage ethnic jewel, she's just not big enough to wear it perfectly. But you are.
