Rabari or Raika tribe which is also known as Rewari tribe resides predominantly in Gujarat, Punjab, Haryana, Madhya Pradesh and Rajasthan in India. They are also known as Desai, Dewasi and Hirvanshi. Their dresses and jewelleries reflect their modest life style in comparison to other tribal women. The Rabaris continue to wear their traditional garments. Being a nomadic community every effort is made to maintain their community identity. Hence, the changes in costume over the past several decades seen in other groups have been slow or almost absent here.
As seen in the photo gallery, the necklace is fairly old and made with extreme attention and care. Brass is used as a metal, but time has made it rusty and dark. Therefore it is a true vintage item.
The necklace is worn by using easy to use hook system.
