Leather Necklace with Decorative Dukat
The dukat, a gold coin used for trade in former Yugoslavia, was also used in Slavonian women's costumes to denote status. Today, decorative dukats reflect this regional tradition while showing the wearer’s sophistication. These leather necklaces are fashioned with traditional Slavonian leathercraft techniques by a master craftsman in Vinkovci; each heart is accented with hand-sewn leather “buttons” and contains a decorative dukat centerpiece.
The differences between these are subtle—choose your color based on the colors of the buttons.
Each decoration is approx. 8 cm wide by 8.5 cm high, and length with attached necklace is approx. 43 cm laid flat.
Handmade in Vinkovci.
