pink agate layering necklace with a genuine Banjara prayer box pendant.
This beautiful necklace features a vintage brass Banjara amulet with two layers of genuine pink agate love beads.
The necklace closes with a silver chain and a french hook.
This necklace is 23 inches in length and hangs just below the breastbone.
This pendant was made by the nomadic Banjara people in northern India. The material is "gillet" metal, which is about three-fourths brass, mixed with copper, silver, iron, or all three. The surface is buffed with a thick silver plating that is very durable. The glass stones were set with beeswax originally, but some may have been replaced at some point over the years using jeweler's glue.
Prayer boxes are hung on necklaces, belts, and clothing. Prayers or another talismanic item is placed inside the box for protection, luck, and love.
