Emerald Beads and Necklace

Fathali Shah is shown in a miniature portrait wearing a broad belt with a number of emerald beads hanging from its length. Though the fate of the belt is now unknown, it appears that the beads on this necklace were the same ones portrayed on the belt. The lenght of this necklace is 10.7 cm. (4.3 in.)

The item in the center was a decoration which was intended to be hung around the neck by a necklace. It is made of three large emeralds, the largest is 80 cts and the smallest is 15 cts., and many diamonds.
