Product Description

Dibadib is a warrior’s pendant. When a warrior becomes fully initiated he is entitled to wear this pearl shell necklace. The shell is round, to signify that you are a full warrior. It is worn in battle and in ceremonies and dance. Crescent shaped pendants are worn by the warriors who have not yet attained fully initiated status.
