Exceptional antique temporal pendant from Tunisia.
The women of Djerba wore many ornaments of temples, all more original than the others.
This one is a small one, with an excellent silver alloy. The upper part is formed of a silver plate cut and etched.
5 chains with flat rings are hung on this plate and carry at their end a small hand-shaped amulet for four of them and a crescent moon for one.
Pristine condition for this genuine old Berber pendant.
I used a pale green natural silk to give you the opportunity to wear this ethnographic jewel. If the color doesn’t suite you, you can ask for an other one.
Truly one of a kind pendant. Very rare.
