Necklace with 8 polished sapphires and small ruby pearls. India 17th to 20th century.

The knowledge of precious stones in India has a long history. When tradesmen and poets in the 6th century AD wished to know something about the source of precious stones, their quality, forces and individual minerals, they consulted the Ratnapariksa, the main work on Indian knowledge about stones and the authority on the subject. For example it says, the colour of the sapphire is like the dark blue shimmer on the lotus flower.""

India is rich on precious stone gravels. Especially the mines in Colconda have supplied the maharajas of Mysore and Rajputs in Rajasthan with the finest diamonds. Marco Polo (1254 - 1324) exemplified the opulence of the ruling class in a rapport that says, ""King Sundara-Pandya of Malabar . wears a necklace consisting only of the most costly precious stones: Ruby, sapphire, emeralds .What the king wears . is more worth than a whole city can mobilize in ransom"".

Our chain measures in length 46 cm and weights 25 gram. The measures of the sapphires are between 0,6 and 0,8 cm.
