Hebron Bead Necklace With Silver Bedouin Yemeni Cage Beads
This is a gorgeous statement Hebron bead necklace made with antique Hebron trade beads made before the 1880's in Hebron and traded widely across the globe. They are getting rarer and harder to find. This necklace is made of 10 graduated blue green Hebron beads separated by silver flower shaped spacers and ending in a lovely Yemeni silver cage bead and a cuboid silver bead on each side. The beads are threaded onto sterling silver wire and the necklace ends with two different Yemeni cone finials. The necklace closes with an S closure. All the metal beads test as silver. The necklace is in great vintage shape ready to be loved again.
