About

Pendant Necklace, Silver, Adjustable, Djokja, Indonesia A very characteristic necklace. The design in which the Lotus flower is so central immediately betrays its origin. The necklace consists of a cord with a silver ornament at both ends and as a connection, adjustable in length, a silver clip in the shape of a lotus flower. Big silver (adjustable) ornament 50 x 50 mm. Small silver ornaments 30 x 30 mm. About Djoka Silver, Indonesia In present-day Indonesia there are a number of places where silverware production has been concentrated for centuries. One of these places was Kota Gede on Java, now Kotagede near the city that is now called Yogyakarta, but was known as Djokjakarta in colonial times. Over the centuries there has been a development in the character of the products from the silver workshops. For a period of time, the emphasis in Kota Gede was on that kind of silver we call jokja. In general you could say that jokjazilver is silverware made by Javanese silversmiths in Kota Gede for the (Indo) European community between about 1930 and 1970 and which is recognizable by the characteristic motifs (of which the lotus figure is the most important), and that has got its typical contrast from the blackening of the silver. Around 1930, approximately 18,000 kilograms of silver were mined annually in the Indies, always together with gold mining, especially in Sumatra (gold and silver mine Salida), Borneo (Pontianak) and Celebes. Silver has never been mined in the area around Kota Gede. For the production, people have therefore always been dependent on the silver that was supplied. Usually coins were used. For a long time, Mexican dollars were used for this purpose, which was regarded internationally as the most important trading currency since 1550 until the Gold Standard (1870-1914). Later mainly Dutch rijksdaalders and guilders were used. In the surrounding countries melted coins were also used to make silverware. For this, for example, the Spanish Reaal-van-Echten, the French Piastre de Commerce, the U.S. Trade Dollar and the Rupee of the British East India Company. In times of scarcity, the client had to supply the silver himself. Apart from coins, this could be any other silver object.
