The diversity of the Arabian Peninsula is seen not only in its landscapes and peoples, but also in its jewellery styles, which differ markedly from state to state. The Sultanate of Oman possessed, and still possesses, some of the most skilled silversmiths in Arabia. The silver jewellery they produce is of a quality and beauty unsurpassed in the Arab world, and this is an introduction to the subject. There are colour illustrations of khanjars (the characteristic T-shaped dagger of Oman), necklaces, anklets, bracelets, hair decorations and earrings, together with an informative textual background to their history, manufacture and styles.
