This sterling and coral replica of an original Chachal (necklace in Quiché, the Mayan native language) worn by the elite to symbolize status and to provide protection. When the Europeans arrived, they began adding coins and relics made from coin silver.
Rare and valuable, chachal necklaces are a conversation piece - a primitive and soulful part of history with a story of their own. This iconic artifact is a reminder of a people that have survived for centuries, and of our humanity and the value of relics that allow our human stories to live on.
This is a substantial statement piece made with sustainable bamboo coral beads, sterling coins and relics including a Mexican cross and milagros (small charms believed to provide miracles).
Farmed coral beads, sterling coins, cross, milagros and charms. Bronze toggle. 30" Made in the USA
