Vintage sterling silver Yemen necklace, silver chainmail choker, Bedouin wedding, tribal bib colllar, gypsy jewelry, Art Deco, nomad jewelry

Sorry, this item has sold.

Here we have a fabulous necklace from Yemen, made of interconnecting pieces, like chainmail, meant to be worn fairly tight, and absolutely stunning on. The piece has a STERLING stamp--see Photo 2--and I believe that there is a good amount of sterling silver content but also coin silver and/or less. Still, the patina is lovely, the way it lays on the high part of the chest just below the neck, quite lovely.

The necklace is 1" wide including the ball bead fringe, and is 17-1/2" long from tip to tip including the part of the chain that you hook in the back. The main part of the necklace is, by contrast, more like 11-1/2" long. But certainly it is perfect for someone looking for a piece that is about 14 or so inches closed, which will leave just a bit of the clasp part of the chain hanging down in the back.

Beautiful piece from the past that is absolutely in style, statement making, and authentic tribal for today.
