Harappan Ornaments

This collection of gold and agate ornaments includes objects found at both Mohenjo-daro and Harappa. At the top are fillets of hammered gold that would have been worn around the forehead.The other ornaments include bangles, chokers, long pendant necklaces, rings, earrings, conical hair ornaments, and broaches. Such ornaments were never buried with the dead, but were passed on from one generation to the next. These ornaments were hidden under the floors in the homes of wealthy merchants or goldsmiths.

Hi Sindu,

Thatz really nice & very important information.

Infact last month I bought two ornaments, one for my wife (for her birthday) and another one is for my daughter(on her birthday).

But I have bought them blidly, just by trusting the shop owner & shop name....then I thought how can I check whether I am putting money for the right item

but now, with your information, I can buy safely.
