amalia jewel

Amalia Jewelry is showcasing two of its items. The first one is the Taiganja pendant necklace from Kulawi, Central Sulawesi, which serves as a status symbol to its owner and is usually inherited within the family. Representing strength, courage, fertility, harmony, and social status, this jewelry is commonly included in wedding dowries. The second one is the Multisala, a necklace made of a strand of beads from East Nusa Tenggara. Beads have long been considered as a symbol of culture and identity. On Multisala, the number of beads also represents the wearer's status in society and their economic capability. Other than being presented as a dowry, the necklace is also a family heirloom.
