Kabyle Coral Necklace

$ 2,595

A pretty necklace from Algeria with lots of old Mediterranean red coral ad enamel pendants. It is made with French franc coins, belying the colonial history of Algeria.  The pendants have different ages, they would have been passed down and reconfigured over the generations, but they nonetheless come together with wonderful harmony. These ceremonial necklaces are increasingly rare as they are often broken apart for elements.
