Designer Notes and Details
Regal and majestic, the Power Claw Amulet Necklace is part(s) Eritrean, Ethiopian & Indian. The hand-carved cap features indigenous Habesha zig-zag motif, complimented by a ball tip reminiscent of the charm of past Indian Maharajas. This beautiful heirloom documents a relationship of ancient trade between the The Horn of Africa & Gujarat India. One piece of jewelry can tell a thousand stories.
For over a millennia in Eritrea and Ethiopia, particularly among Amhara, Oromo and Tigrinya peoples, it has been custom for claw amulets to be strewn around the neck to ward off bad energy and impart courage in the wearer.
