Item Description

 

Inspired by the collections of the Israel Museum, Jerusalem, the Rihana necklace was a major component in the jewelry of the Jewish bride from Djerba, Tunisia. In the past it was made by a sophisticated method, apparently brought to Tunisia by Moorish craftsmen: its links were sliced and then joined together by hammering, without any soldering. Similar links also hung from the bride’s earrings and temple ornaments, and they became a characteristic feature of Tunisian silversmithing.

Materials: Brass with gold finish. Lobster Claw closure.
Length: 24 inches, extends to 26 inches
