Afghan Antique Quartz and Silver Necklace
This gorgeous antique Afghan necklace is constructed of quartz stone pieces, with antique silver feature beads and fastenings in a triple strand.
The longest of the three strands is 55cm and the shortest 46cm.
The largest of the stones are 2cm and the smallest 1.8cm.
We selected this piece from our favourite Afghan trader, Qadir Uddin who travels with his carpet bag full of treasure. We have great fun choosing the best and most unusual pieces for Birdwoods. (The fact that he looks alarmingly like Saddam Hussein does not put us off - he is a charming and delightful man, not Saddam obviously, because he is dead.
