Vintage Silver Round Siwa Pendant from Egypt


A Siwa silver pendant known as Adrim decorated using a hand chisel and hammer. It is a mini version of the much larger adrim that is traditionally worn by Siwan unmarried women. The pendant is threaded on a multi strand tuareg Chain to form a stunning choker. The pendant is vintage and handmade, not the modern copies you find these days. Each pattern has an ancient meaning now all but lost.

Diameter is 4 cm (1 1/2"). The length of the chain is 48 cm ( nearly 19"). Weight is 19 grams.
