Vintage Ruby White Heart Beads, Antique African Beaded NecklaceWoman Shops World
Your life is filled with history & mystery, so you should wear jewelry that reflects your uniqueness. After all, life's too short to wear (or make!) boring jewelry!
Such a delicious color of ruby red, these beads are antique French beads that were traded into Africa. The beads date back as far as the 1500's, but have been newly strung on twine. They are called "White Hearts" because they are made of two layers of glass; they have a "white heart" underneath a ruby red outer layer.
Wear them as/is, or break them apart to create your own tribal magic!

These beads are old; some do show some dirt and minor chips on some edges, and there are a very few white solid red beads strung in on the occasional strand. These variations and slight imperfections are part of their beauty and attest to the age and authenticity of the beads. African beads have such mystery attached to them; they have been worn for decades, travelled continents, and will be around for hundreds of years into the future. Be a part of their story and let these beads grace you with their presence.
