This is a beautiful multi-strand beaded necklace from the Naga people, a tribal group whose homeland is the old North East frontier area of India and Western Burma. This one is genuinely old, a fact which will be self evident to more astute collectors from the photos alone. Naga women wore many different kinds of jewelry simultaneously, and especially on festive occasions you might have found the more well dressed women wearing many necklaces like this at once, in various vivid and bold colors.
