Vintage Tunisian selsla rihana or rihanna necklace. Each link of this beautiful chain was made by hand: hammered to a flat shape and then and soldered shut. It is typically Tunisian, though was also worn in neighboring places. It comes in different sizes and combinations. Rihana chain was not only worn as a necklace, but as part of temporals, fibula chains or to decorate the headdress. The four pendants on this necklace are made from cast silver.  The pendants as well as many links in the chain have the "tête de nègre" silver punch mark which was used 1905-1942. The chain does not have a closure. The pendants are circular with crescent moons and a five pointed star. The necklace is in great condition but there is deep oxidation on the silver.

  • The pendants are 2.5 cm  in diameter (1").
  • The chain is 73 cm (28 3/4") long.
  • The pendants with their chains hang 19 and 25 cm (7 1/2 and 9 3/4") from the main necklace.
