This large Jali filigree pendant is solid sterling silver and is set with a genuine unheated natural Emerald that was mined in India.
Jali filigree is a rare silversmith's art. Very few jewelers in the world produce this type of jewelry.
The design is drawn by hand on the silver and then it is cut out by hand using the tiniest little hand saw. The jewelry is then polished to a mirror finish.
This is a time consuming art.
