|Fine silver wire braided into three ropes gives texture to this mid-20th century sterling bracelet from India's remote Western outpost city of Jaisalmer in the Thar Desert. Three disks, each with an embossed flower, are affixed to three of five bars that clamp the ropes together. This elegant, understated piece of jewelry is in excellent condition. About 70 years old, it was made by the Jain people, a minority group in India who practice Janism, an ancient belief system that includes elements from both Buddhist and Hindu beliefs as well as its own unique and complex components. The bracelet measures 8" (20 cm) in length, and 3/8" (1 cm) in width. The weight is 41 grams. SEE MORE ITEMS IN OUR COLLECTION AT WWW.SILKROAD1.COM|
