This necklace is pretty amazing. It belongs to a friend of mine that she won as a lot on auction. I couldn't believe my eyes when she pulled it out to show me.
From what we found, it appears to be a prayer box necklace from the Middle East. Maybe Turkey. We just don't know for sure and wonder if anyone here knows??? If it is a prayer box, it has been sealed. I was hoping someone would recognize the coins and be able to tell us when, where from and so on. Some of the coins are all but worn down too, so I'm pretty sure it's maybe from the 1800's but just dont know.
There are no markings, assay or otherwise that I can find. The last photo is of the opposite side. I hope you can see it clearly enough so my friend and I can learn more about it! I haven't tested it but can say it is silver.
Love any input anyone can lend here! Thanks all ;)
