Antique India Necklace, British India Rupee Necklace
A COLLECTOR'S ITEM:
This is a heavy solid silver necklace featuring two large link chains with one central British India Rupee Coin dated 1912.
Northern India, Silver Necklace (rupaya har or hullar) with British-Indian rupee and six floral units with magenta colour glass stones.
The rupee from 1912 within a circle, and flower surrounds, and on the front side is a crowned bust of George V King Emperor (1910-1936). The coin was minted as high grade silver 91.7%. The British-Indian government used precious metal coinage until 1939 and struck under direct authority of the crown. The chain and the parts tested high grade silver also.
I have not cleaned the necklace - but will polish up beautifully.
The necklace hangs very well as it is quite heavy at 108 Grams.
