Antique Hmong Silver Bracelet ETJ50

The bracelet is made from high grade silver and bears a beautifully detailed traditional floral motif.

Authentic antique Hmong hill tribe silver jewellery is hard to come by nowadays. Recently made Hmong jewelry is often made from inferior alloys, aluminum, or silver plated tin and is quite easily distinguished from the more charming pieces of old when opium production funded the Hmong’s love of silver ornamentation.
