  • Interspersed with 18 ct gold on hardened resin beads, crafted in Afghanistan (vary in size from 4.5 mm, 6.6 mm and 7.3 mm)

  • These Afghan beads (now rare) use ancient techniques. The Afghani have been crafting gold for centuries. When Alexander the Great came to Afghanistan in 330 BC, his people brought many skills, one of which was working in gold. Like the Romans, centuries later, a yellow, 18 ct gold was used. But one of their techniques was to take sheet gold and work it onto hardened resin and then decorate it accordingly. This handiwork and the yellow gold colour give the necklace warmth and character and complements the gems. Sadly, these are now rare beads. Like all antiques, the supply can cease
