Vintage / Antique Elephant Hair Raj Era Bangle

From the days of the British Raj - 1858-1947, probably a souvenir from an Indian safari (not a hunting safari a riding safari!) this type of jewellery would be commissioned from the tail hair of the elephant you rode and brought back as a souvenir from your tour.

This perfect example measures 6.5cm inner diameter and slips effortlessly on to the wrist.  Wear her alone or add her to the perfect #wriststack.

Quite rare and hard to find in this condition, this is truly a collectors piece.
‘For hundreds of years elephant hair jewellery has been believed to protect the wearer from illness and bring us into sync with the elements in nature’.

6.5cm inner diameter
Elephant hair
