Ethnic Jewels

An appreciation of ethnic jewellery and adornment

Vintage silver hinged African Berber bracelet with green stones. This sort of bracelet comes in a number of forms (but all more or less the same), which are usually classified, as coming from North Africa or the Middle East, Jordan, Oman, Yemen. However, in this one we see a style of decoration that is also sometimes found in Indian jewellery. The silver is not of a very high alloy, the green jade has not been tested professionally, so it remains a lovely ‘green stone’. The bracelet has however been cleaned by a professional goldsmith and is in excellent condition. The closing pin is original. Please add your knowledge or comments on this specific bracelet. I would be grateful to each and everyone.
