Vintage Kabyle Necklace, Northern Algeria
A gorgeous silver necklace from Kabylie, Northern Algeria, made circa 1980. The chain that links the elements together is so unusual with its double links and sets off beautifully the enamelled circular and teardrop-shaped pendants. It is elegant and lightweight. The pendant components display traditional Kabyle enamelling in blue, yellow and green, highlighted with beads of Mediterranean coral. A beautifully designed eye-catching necklace.
