Omani silver necklace
Some necklaces have a beautiful design (like the Manthura), while other types of necklace (like the Shakka) look a bit messy.
These latter type of necklaces were made by the Bedouin women from individual pieces that were purchased when could afford it. Many necklaces started shorter and grew longer as the woman grew older.
Necklaces with a Koran-box attached to it have been listed under a separate silver Koran-box section.
The Shubqah necklaces are very curious as the image of Indian gods have been stamped on them.
The Baluchi (?) Marriya beads are also interesting as we have never seen a complete necklace, not even in a museum, but only find loose different beads.
The antique Makhnak necklace (see photo on the right) has also become rare.
