Silver Jewelry for Men from Indonesia
Indonesia is home to great jewelry, mainly for women, but simpler items like those featured on this page for men. For women, the jewelry tends to be oversized and ornate, which is a bit surprising since Indonesian women are generally petite.
Some designs, such as the cross featured here, are obviously made with a foreign market in mind, as Christians constitute a small minority in Indonesia. Other symbols, like Ganesh, remover of obstacles, come from Hindu mythology. And sometimes a beautiful design is just that, a beautiful design, based on the kind of flowing imagery popular in Bali.
