Fabulous old pendant necklace, Buddhist or Hindu origin, with a peaceful deity small statue figure sitting on a throne , body of real coral, face if highly carved in detail and may or may not be coral, tiny turquoise pieces possibly genuine and probably untreated if so around and her feet are sitting on what we think is old white glass, matching the white round chips on the six medallions on the necklace, probably old white glass beads broken or split in two, with royal blue center stones we also think are fine old glass beads sliced for this use. All hand crafted of course, old and original, the blue beads are bezel set, others are probably glued onto their backing. The figure is amazing, much more intricate than the photos show, her lower legs of a gold tone metal that could have some karat content, just no way to test this piece without damaging it, back of medallions appears to be a gold tone metal of unknown content and not believed to be any real gold content. The figures head is supported by a gold tone metal block behind her head to prevent it from being broken off, very smart. The deity figure pendant measures 1 & 3/8" wide and is 2" tall including the dangles and 1/4" thick front to back. Each of the six medallions measure 7/8" across, and the necklace is on its original chain and 17" around on the inside. A rare piece we think, never seen one like this, very tribal, very wonderful. Overall good condition, a few pieces of stones missing, one earring is empty, etc.
