This necklace is relatively small, and in it there are round beads that have been gilded (wire-crafted), instead of mulberry beads (made from grains of silver). The maʻaneqah has a uniform pattern, but there was a variation in the size of the necklace and in its types of beads. Sometimes pearls would take the place of the octagonal dice beads.
