An appreciation of ethnic jewellery and adornment

Head Decoration - Saudi Arabia

I was looking for a nice pair in good silver of these head decorations for quite some time. They are very long!

I forgot to say that I love the photography, too!

Beautiful - the "bells" remind me of their Ethiopian cousins. As a matter of fact very similar pieces are worn for example in Eritrea and Sudan. Maybe not surprising...

Dear Thelma; ... and no, they do not make noises. Due to their length, they are quite heavy and therefore, are giving only a slight, elegant sound. With kind regards. Peter

Dear Thelma; Many thanks for your comments. Looking at them (I do not have a measurement here at my apartment - I will measure them at my home), I would say that they are between 35 and 40 cm long. With kind regards. Peter

I love these. It would be so interesting to see what they look like when they are worn... How long are they? Must be used for special occasions only. Do these make a noise as well?
