African Zulu Beaded Choker Necklace Multiple Love Letter Red on Black
This African Necklace a Black Beaded Rope Choker with Multiple Red Mini Love Letters cascading down. It is handcrafted by local Zulu women in a rural area of Kwa-Zulu Natal, South Africa.
A contemporary fashion version of the traditional Love Letter Necklace which is presented to a male by a female who has interest in him. I'm told that in Zulu culture, the woman would be too shy to say I love you and therefore lets the Love Letter do the talking for her. Patterns and colors in the traditional love letter can be used throughout the relationship to communicate.
The vintage form of the Love Letter that is presented to the male is also shown on this website.
Approximate Dimensions: Rope Necklace 19" L - Love Letters drape an additional 6.5" from the Black Rope Necklace
