Zealand traditional jewellery

These pieces come from Zealand, a province of the Netherlands in between Holland and Flanders.
Everything is made in gold or silver, combined with garnets or blood coral.
It's amazing that this was part of the Sunday dress of farmers and villagers.
Not only their jewellery is stunning also their headdresses, skirts and bodices, shawls, ... everything made with an eye for the finest details!
