The word “Chachal” in Quiche language means necklace. These beautiful objects have a fascinating tale of history, culture, art, and economics that begins during the Pre Columbian period hundreds-thousands of years ago and continues to the present where they still worn by many Mayan populations. Like many aspects of Guatemalan culture, the chachales are a blend of ancient native elements with the influence of the European conquerors.

Guatemalan necklaces use coins from Spain, as well as all of the Latin American countries that were once Hispanic colonies along with trade beads from bead centers in Venice, Bohemia/Czechoslovakia, England, & Spain.

Our antique Guatemalan earrings date from early-mid 20th century and are based on designs and motifs that were brought by the Spanish during the Colonial Period (1523-1821). Several of these styles are still worn today by the Maya in the Highland region of Guatemala. The Spanish jewelry of the 16th-18th century is a unique blend of tastes, materials, values, and beliefs of several different cultures who inhabited the Iberian peninsula over hundreds of years: Romans, Moors, Jews, Christians
