Vintage Saudi Bedouin Silver Bib Necklace With Chains and Coin Pendants
A lovely bib necklace from Saudi Arabia, though it could have also been worn in Yemen. The necklace is from mid-century and is entirely handmade from eight graduated length chains connected to a central filigree element and two sidebar elements with red glass cabochons. From these elements hang pendants made of Saudi coins. The necklace ends with triangular finials and two short chains with a small hook and eye closure.
Wearable length is 57 cm (22 1/2"). Drop is 11.5 cm (4 1/2"). Weight is 217 grams.
