Silver balangandan from Brazil, consisting of 10 amulets or charms.
The balangandan, an object deeply ingrained in the Brazilian popular culture, is an item of jewellery that, in addition to the virtues of an amulet, acquired the power to change the life of its owners in certain historical circumstances.
The balangandan consists of a set of charms, attached to a base called ‘ìnaveî’ that connects them to a chain.
Its name is an onomatopoeia of the sound produced by women who wore this item of jewellery while walking.
