Nepalese Tharu Rupee Necklace

80.00 AUD

I first fell in love with these antique Nepalese rupee necklaces, traditionally worn by the Tharu tribe, back in 2013 when I was living in India. I unearthed them in the backstreets of Kathmandu, ummed and ahhed over their price, decided to come back later and – as it always happens in those situations – didn’t. I regretted it something fierce. This time around, I made it my mission to find them again and come home with a bunch of the beauties to share with you guys.
Wearing coin jewellery just makes me feel abundant. It always gets me noticed. And I don’t go on any trip without bringing some coin bling with me.

Now, hopefully, you won’t either.
