Berber Gold Ball Beads

Description

19th – early 20th century, Berber, Morocco

It’s been so long since Jewels has found these most fabulous beads!    It was 11 years we last saw a string of these, deep in the Medina of Marrakech, already priced for the king!  Maybe the Berber banks are closed these days?  Jewels had enough to make three pairs.  Fingers crossed she’ll find more this next trip.  These are true tribal ornaments, worn and loved and the dents to prove it.  They are made of a low karat gold- and still highly valued.  Dress them up with a LBD or casual with jeans and a T.

A limited Jewels’ standard design

Beads: approximately  .5″  diameter

Drop from top of hook to bottom of bead: 2.25″

$325.00
