A lot of craft is required though, to carve the coconut shells which are as hard as ivory and normal wood carving equipment does not work. Next the lacquering and gold leaf application which are ancient crafts with high know how and the assembly again, which requires patience and skill.

The result is a truly royal necklace for the woman with self confidence.
Length 17.5"

When visiting Angkor wat or Borobudur one sees these stunning necklaces the members of the royal households were wearing.
We reproved them in gold and no matter how thin we worked them , they came out too heavy and were uncomfortable to wear but in carved coco nut with 24 k gold leaves they met the modern standards of comfort.
