Zahra Necklace

Zahra, an Arabic name, meaning “brilliant”, “bright” and “flower” succinctly describes the beautiful ethnic filigree statement silver pendant from Oman in this necklace. The chased and punched designs are mostly floral and geometric patterns which are accentuated with silver granulation and applied motifs. Traditional filigree work borders the circumference of this elaborate pendant. This stunning piece displays the rich and ornate silversmith techniques indigenous to this area.

It is complemented by white Mother of Pearl beads which are accented by red coral and Bali silver spacers. Mother-of-pearl’s eye-catching iridescence enhances the beauty of this piece. Mother-of-pearl itself is the nacreous inner shell coating of pearl-producing mollusks. It is said to have a calming effect on those who wear it. It has also been used for thousands of years, dating back to the ancient Egyptians and Sumerians. It has been inlaid into Islamic religious art and East Asian ornaments, furniture and architectural elements. In the West, mother-of-pearl became extremely popular during the Victorian Era. The Victorians used mother-of-pearl inlay to decorate household items such as knife handles, jewellery boxes, and buttons. As well as being worn as jewellery, it is still used to decorate guitars and other musical instruments.

This stunning Zahra necklace is finished with a handmade sterling silver clasp, chain and SHIKHAZURI logo bead. It is an exquisite statement piece that effortlessly embodies sophisticated elegance.
