FAQ - This jewelry was popular 1930s-1970's. The design was carved into sterling and then filled with an "enamel-like" powder and baked. It was referred to as  "Niello" or "Nielloware" The designs feature figures from cultural mythology including  Mekkala, the Goddess of Lightning from the  Buddhist and Hindu Indian legend, Ramayama.  These pieces represent the excellent craftsmanship of the community and continued to be popular sweetheart gifts from soldiers throughout the Viet Nam War. The labeling "Siam" was indicative of earlier items.
