I m almost afraid to tell you because you won't believe me but this was another 1 euro find earlier this year! (Thats about 1,3 dollar).
Its a rare Islamic 19th century 18 carat gold and enamel Koran (Qoer'?n) charm. Its small, about 1,2cm high and it has an islamic mark on the jumpring. It is in the form of the Koran book. The really cool part is it slides open so you can put a miniature paper version of the Koran inside the charm for good luck!
On the front you can see in Islamic letters the words Allah and another word I dont recognise and on the back you can see the Hagia Sophia church I think.
They still make this type of charms new, but none of them have this quality of enamel.
I hope you like it!
