MAPUCHE JEWELLERY

The Mapuche are Chile’s largest indigenous group. Mapuche translates into 'People of the Earth' They were renown for their jewellery and silversmithing techniques (called rutran). Over time, silver Mapuche jewellery became a central feature of Mapuche women’s traditional attire and an important component of their bridal dowry. Typical pieces include the chain link belt, earrings, breast ornaments, breast pins, and the pins used to hold their woollen shawls.
