Some pieces show a great preference for coral, amber, garnet and stones of red color. Also it is characterized by the use of bells, balls, chains, coins; as well as beads colorful and pendants. By tradition women used many of these pieces as a symbol of protection as well as talismans to drive away bad spirits. The tradition dictates that the jewels must be destroyed when the owner dies.
