Lakh or lac ornament, originally purchased in Jaipur, India. The ornament, not including the string for hanging, is 7" from top of the lakh to the bottom of the tassel. Lakh resin jewelry is a traditional art of India. It is principally used for colorful, lightweight jewelry.
The cental design here is 2 1/4" x 1 1/4" x and about 3/8" thick. One side is inlaid with rhinestones, the other has a swan pattern beneath a layer of clear blue resin. It is in very good condition, although the tassel shows some fraying.
The former owner used this as a Christmas ornament, though it may originally havebeen a pendant.
