TALES OF UKRAINE
TOLD IN JEWELS
Coral necklaces or Коралі were a traditional part of a Ukrainian woman's wardrobe.
The more strands, and the bigger the bead, the more prosperous its wearer.
Not only are semi-precious stones beautiful, but they house great strength and power, transferring such qualities to their wearer.
We have wandered across all corners of Ukraine to uncover some of these ancient pieces.
