This is a very beautiful and very heavy pendant necklace i purchased in Sirinagar Kashmir many many years ago. It has marked a 925 for sterling silver but i did not verify the silver grade. The stones are Red Carnelians beads of a type usually called as Sard Chalcedony and the accents in the pendant are, according to the seller red garnets. No gemstone was tested. The quality of this necklace is truly impressive and far from more common boho gypsy stuff. This was a wedding necklace probably from turkoman tribes in north of Afghanistan although i know pieces similar in style and craftsmanship from West Nepal. Not too old, maybe from the early 1990s. I believe this is ethnic jewelry at its best. Great piece.
