Description
The majestic design of this is designed by Guatemala's Jimenez Family in honor of K'abel, queen of the Maya. Falling round the neck like a breastplate, the necklace is crafted by hand with tubular pendants of dark green jade linked together with sterling silver. K'abel was a renowned warrior queen whose tomb was found in 2012 in the Maya city of El Peru-Waká, in northwestern Petén, Guatemala. Considered one of the greatest of Maya rulers, K'abel was a military governor of the Wak Kingdom who ruled for at least 20 years with her husband, King K'inich Bahlam. She carried the title of supreme warrior or kaloomte, which placed her in a higher position of authority, over her husband.
