This vintage tribal necklace is from the Miao people of Hunan, China. It was made circa 1950 of a mixture of high quality white metals. It is a large, intricately crafted, magnificent piece, perfect for show-stopping wear or as a unique wall hanging.
This unusual necklace is made from very thin Pre-Columbian copper plates, which were once used as digging tools, as well as money, apple coral, coral, brass, shell, and ostrich eggshell. It is perfect as a statement piece, or a collector’s item.
