The Montagnard are indigenous people of the Central Highlands of Vietnam. The French during Colonial times gave these people the name, which means ‘people of the mountain’. It is the inspiration for this necklace by the designer which consists of white shimmering baroque pearls combined with a Hill-Tribe silver centerpiece interlaid with Hill-Tribe silver nuggets, Hill-Tribe silver spheres and Hill-Tribe spacers throughout the piece.
