Our Idia necklace, named after Queen Idia , mother of Esigie, the Oba of Benin (in present day Nigeria) who ruled from 1504 to 1550, celebrates the richness of the  Edo-Benin people and its culture.

This necklace features a pendant which is a figure wearing a gele (which means head-tie or headwrap in Yoruba) synonymous with various African peoples, and a simple woven gold chain.

This necklace is a bestseller and we can see why as it is a tasteful homage to the contemporary love and popularity of headwraps within the African Diaspora around the world. This necklace is ideal for lovers of Afrocentric jewellery. It is timeless staple in any diasporic babe's collection.
