A truly statement piece, this vintage traditional bangle is a collectors item and was hand selected in Addis Ababa for The Silk Road. It is one of our favourite items in this collection and is approximately 100 years old. Although pieces such as this are worn in Ethiopia, the origin is likely to be Yemen, as this was the source of much silver jewellery along the East African-Arabian Peninsula trade routes during the time.
Composition~ Lower grade silver, as is common in vintage tribal pieces.
Inner circumference 22cms
