The Weight of Commitment 

Antique Gold south Indian Ashtam Wedding Pendant

The weight of this token of commitment is about 100grams.

Of Gold.

!!!

In case you are underwhelmed … here is a similar piece displayed in the V & A museum that is an example of the complete necklace.

What a fantastic way the Chettiar community found to celebrate the wedding and welcome of the new bride!!
