Jewelry from Nepal: Individual Pieces

This is a very typical dori necklace worn by women in the Middle Hills of Nepal. It is composed of a center pendant decorated with glass stones, which represents an arrowhead and fourteen mango-shaped side elements, all repousse and hung on a double cord wrapped with black. Each of the elements is of thin sheets of silver repousse fashioned into their respective shapes and filled with pitch.

The arrowhead is 4" high and each of the mango shapes is 2" long. The overall length of the cord is 32".
