This is an authentic large orange tile beaded necklace from Nagaland, specifically from the Konyak tribe, "Authentic" meaning hand-made and worn by the Naga people for their many ceremonies and seasonal festivals and not made for the tourists. These necklaces, worn by both men and women, were often usually used, re-used, re-worked or repaired if needed.

Nagaland is a small mountainous state in Northeast India comprised of many small tribal villages. It consists of 17 major tribes and 20 sub-tribes/clans, each being quite unique in its culture and traditions. Nagaland itself has a culture that is quite distinct from mainland India.

This particular Nagaland necklace, from the Konyak tribe, is quite heavy weighing 500 grams, measures 13.5" in length from top to bottom and 33.5" around the outside circumference of the necklace. It is comprised of 7 strands of large orange tile beads and has a aged and crusty woven closure attached directly to both sides of each strand of beads. Consequently, the necklace must be put over one's head to be worn. It probably dates to the late 19th to early 20th century, is in excellent antique condition consistent with its age and usage, and is an important and impressive piece of Nagaland history.
