Ladies, give your traditional style a stunning edge with these brilliant neckpieces before the year runs out!
Gorgeous…beautiful…and charming! Nothing more describes the elaborate ornamentation of Nigerian beaded necklaces which richly adorn traditional attires for both men and women.
Interestingly, wearing of traditional beaded jewelleries existed in Nigerian culture as early back in the 11th century; however, this cultural trend has gained wide popularity, outspokenness and prominence in our time than ever.
Many ethnic groups in Nigeria have strong affiliations with beads which serve a variety of purposes.
Nevertheless, each trend and each season brings more diversity in styles, techniques, and colours. Not to mention the variety of media from which these beads are made e.g. corals, precious stones, plastics, wood, shells, pearls, glasses, silver, gold, copper etc.
However, you may be wondering: why should I have a customized beaded jewellery? The truth is not far-fetched. Ordering your customised beaded necklace is usually cost effective in the long term although it may appear to be expensive at first hand.
High quality beads usually last longer, than metallic jewelleries which may lose its lustre over time. High quality customised beaded jewellery are made with durable and higher quality materials as compared to the regular costume beads usually sold at very cheap prices. With beaded jewelleries, you could have a variety of styles and textures to suit your personal taste.
