A beautiful and imposing Maria Theresa Thaler silver coin pendant made from a real Maria Theresa Thaler silver coin dated 1780. The pendant was sourced in Saudi Arabia and dates back to the mid-twentieth century.  A single large ring is soldered shut and attached to the bail.  Seven sets of double chains hang from the bottom of the coin and end in a spherical dangle. 

The Maria Theresa Thaler coin was widely used for trade across the world well after it was first minted. It was also used by silversmiths to create jewelry across the Middle East. This pendant is Bedouin from the Arabian Peninsula, judging by its dangles and chains.  All of the elements of the pendant including the chains and dangles are made of silver alloy. In good vintage condition.

  • Length of pendant from ring to bottom of dangles: 16.5 cm (6 1/2").
  • The diameter of the coin is 3.9 cm  (just over 1 9/16"). 
  • Weight is 129 g.
