I have this bracelet that I have looked on the internet for some clue to what or where it comes from, but I can't seem to find anything similar. Please if you know where it comes from please help. One side has a mark of a cross and I can't really make out the other sides markings. All of the pieces in are separate and looks to be hand crafted.

Thank you

The fourth picture contains what look like hallmarks. Can you post a close-up of them?

I have been looking on the Internet and I think I finally saw something that looks similar. Rajasthan India Asia Silver(bazuband in Hindi, called bahutta by Moslems) Not sure if its the same but the pictures I have found look very close to what I have. I am still unsure of the markings though and if any one can make them out and know what they are would be very helpful.

Thanks for the help.

There are a few recently published titles about Ethnic jewelry. I see them at every Borders and Barnes and Noble I go to. Perhaps if you are near one of those stores and have a chance, you can drop in and go to the antiques section and see if they have any of the books. I don't own the books, but they might be of help to you in identifying your bracelet. They are amply illustrated. Unfortunately, this type of jewelry is not my forte.
