|Antique Yemeni Silver Necklace
Deep-coloured real coral beads beautifully complement this charming handmade silver necklace. The distinctive decorative shapes dangling between the coral beads are bound together by tribal ball bells. According to tribal beliefs, the soft chiming of these bells was to ward of evil spirits. A detail of fine four-petal floral shapes adorn the dangling pieces at each end, and a characteristic hollow amulet is set in the middle of the composition. These amulets were believed to protect their bearer. Here, the engraved amulet is decorated with slightly larger ball bells so that during movement, a gentle element of sound adds to the visual charm of this necklace, making it a magical piece.

|Gilded Silver Bukhara Bracelet
An extrordinary piece with superb hand-crafted detail incorporating a pattern of flora on both sides of this gilded antique silver bracelet.
The large central oval cornelian stone is characteristically set in a raised bed of the same shape. The deep blue of the lapis lazuli stones set on either side of the central cornelian create an enchanting composition of colour echoed by two smaller cornelian stones found at each end of this beautifully gilded bracelet. The adjustable design of this piece make it a perfect fit on the wrist.
Please note that one piece of lapis lazuli is missing on the side not shown in this photograph; this is only to be expected considering the age of this marvelous piece.
