I offer here some cultural background on the wedding customs of the nineteenth century in Yemen. The bridal dowry of that time was supposed to include as much silver as possible, because the dowry served the purpose that a nice large cash gift would serve in modern times. It was given partly as the bride price that the husband had paid and partly as a gift from the bride's family. The dowry was the woman's own household bank account and her insurance policy in case her husband was disabled or died before she did.

The amount of silver jewelry that the bride wore that day also showed her honored status. For that reason, even the bride whose husband and family could not afford to give her the 10 or 20 pounds of silver that some brides wore, the family could rent a collection of bridal jewelry from a merchant's shop. For that reason, some bridal necklaces would include pieces from a variety of silversmiths. The small Bedihi beads made of stacked layers of silver granules are also a rare find at present.. other shop https://www.etsy.com/shop/Africanbazar2US?ref=seller-platform-mcnav
