This is an antique Tibetan Buddhist ga'u or reliquary box. Traditionally these are filled with some sacred objects, relics and the like, and then worn on a cord around the neck as a sort of religious talisman. They are typically ornate and make for attractive jewelry but they are in fact a mobile shrine, and one with protective properties.
