Seller's Note/ The silver smiths in the medieval city of Ragusa (Dubrovnik) began to produce such beads and jewelry way back in the mid-1400s and still continue to this day. Dubrovnik-style beads and jewelry caught on with other silver smiths throughout the Balkans and Eastern Europe and became very popular during medieval times. Sheri says that these could also serve as an earrings (click here for another match) or look very cool on a charm bracelet.
