Necklace – head band – strap armlet / anklet – belt (with added extensions). Yemeni origin – Sana’a province. 100 – 150 years. Coin silver , sourced from melting MariaTheresa coins (%80 -%90) This is the highest grade available at the time. This necklace is wonderful piece of ethnographic artistry, featuring authentic antique Yemeni Jewish (Yemenite) silver globe beads, masterfully strung with colorful antique trade glass beads , and capped with a rare pair of antique silver cone ornaments , The round black beads are genuine natural and expensive black coral. These iconic and collectible beads is a great example of the workmanship of the world famous Yemeni Jewish artisans of the 19 century. This community of artisans was one of the oldest populations of indigenous Jews in the world, but by the 1948 most had moved to Palestine. Like an uprooted plant , this tradition withered away, leaving few and ever dwindling examples in its homeland of Yemen. Nowadays it’s hard to find a bead or two of these scarce and precious beads, specially of such rare and sought after medium wearable size , but we were very fortunate to acquire an entire collection that was a part of a treasured heirloom.
