Description: Beautiful book about the traditional coin jewelry worn with folk costumes throughout Ukraine. The coins and the jewelry made from them are called “dukach” and were an integral element of women’s ethnic fashion in the 19th and early 20th century. This album presents hundreds of fine examples of these important pieces of jewelry ranging from the most plain medallions to highly decorative pieces of jewelry. Accompanied by historic images of women wearing full folk dress and jewelry/dukach.
