Married Woman's Necklace

The practice of marriage is found in almost all cultures, but different cultures have different traditions for engagement, wedding ceremonies, and married life. In this photo we see a Kamba women’s marriage necklace. The Kamba are an ethnic group located in east-central Kenya. Similar to the way that some men and women wear rings to symbolize that they are married, Kamba women may wear this necklace to visually show they are married.
