Handusi Jewels of the Nile Necklace
The Handusi Necklace is a unique piece from our popular Jewels of the Nile Collection. The word "handusi" means "square" in Arabic, the main language spoken in Egypt, where the artisan that made this necklace was born. True to its name, the Handusi Necklace was made using German silver and pewter, and features squares and rectangles of various sizes. This necklace does not tarnish, but rather develops a beautiful betina-like finish over time. The charm at the end of this piece symbolizes good luck and prosperity in the Turkish culture, as the artisan currently resides in Turkey.
