This handmade necklace is a magnificent work of art and is inspired from an early 20th century original ethnic tribal Jewish festivity necklace known as the "ma'nageh". Worn commonly by Jewish women, this motif has a long history and is found in Pharaonic and African jewelry as well. The end plaques, known as the "tadarif" are decorated with filigree work and granulation and hold the multiple strands of twisted amber and carnelian beads. Available in silver or gold overlay. Handmade in Israel.
