Currently Contas de Viana (Viana beads) are hollow, and years ago, they were even lighter - and are descendent of the Roman and Etruscan Phoenicians beads, these last oes the os that most reseemble thecurrent Contas de Viana. 

 

The granulation or sprinkles and the surrounding filigree were nothing more than adornment, because what always prevailed was its spherical and rounded shape.

 

The beaded necklace was purchased by Viana's wife before the much desired cord.

 

It was often bought on account at the expense of these young girls' small savings, usually from the sale of eggs or the chicken trade.

      The assay office mark guarantees the precious metal type and fineness of precious metal articles.
