Rare vintage crescent half moon necklace, once loved and worn by the Banjara gypsies/nomads of India. I have attached a photo of a Banjara lady wearing one similar.
These types of Banjara moon necklaces are becoming incredibly difficult to find these days and in great demand, this stunning moon necklace will always attract lots of compliments. I have one myself so I am talking from experience :) It's great to be able to wear such a well known piece of Banjara history and be able to tell their story.
The colorful string is decorated with rupees and the crescent shape is adorned with hanging embellishments. You can see the remains of inlaid beautiful engraved metalwork.
Length including chain: 49cm
Perfect accent for a tribal belly dance costume, or as a signature statement piece. A perfect chance to buy a bit of India's rare jewellery history.
