Ready to Ship, 4 day delivery (India)
Amuletic jewellery and amulet containers have been an important part of the Indian jewellery tradition because imparting protection to the wearer was an important function of jewellery. Amulet boxes (Taweez) that were worn on the persons body were popular - these evolved into elaborate forms of jewellery one example of which is seen here.
The stunning pendant is in the shape of an amulet box , with a panel on top ornamented with a central `Kirtimukha' (glory-face or grotesque-mask that wards off the evil) , the pendant opens up on side. The figure of an Apsara or dancing nymph is seen on its center.
