Increasingly rare to find, this vintage bead necklace from India. It is a dramatic piece and lights up a simple black dress.
White heart beads, brass and rope.
Gonds have lent their name to Gondwana ("the Land of the Gonds"), the part of India in which they live. They are found over almost all of India except the northwestern states (Rajasthan, Haryana, Punjab and Jammu and Kashmir) and the extreme south, but have their greatest concentrations in the rugged hill country of central India.
From a European collection.
