Please do me the favour to help me. On the photos you see two pique pendants. The "tooth" inlaid with silver and some gold dots and the heart inlaid with some white dots. I don't now the material of these white dots neither the material the are made of. It could be painted bone/horn? They both have a ball as you can see. Please can you answer the question, what these are and what they can be used for in the past?

    They do look like horn. I have seen a few modern pendants made of dark wood and inlaid with brass and white metal in a somewhat similar style, those were made in India.
