Towards each end is a section formed of three parallel chains, each with a rectangular silver element at each end, two of these elements decorated with a teardrop-shaped green-coloured stone, two with a yellow-coloured stone, possibly turquoise. A loop at each of the outermost ends, to which is attached a circular brooch. Between the two sets of chains is a row of four rings linking three coins. The central coin depicts King George VI, and is decorated with a stone surrounded by granulations. One other coin is an Indian one rupee dated 1986; the other a Bhutanese coin.
