This unique cha-cha bracelet contains Abrus precatorius, known commonly as jequirity bean, rosary pea, or crab-eye seed. The seeds, which are used as jewelry beads and in percussion instruments are said to be toxic if crushed and ingested because of the presence of abrin. The seeds of Abrus precatorius are much valued in native jewelry for their bright coloration. In Trinidad in the West Indies these seeds are strung into bracelets and worn around the wrist or ankle to ward off evil spirits and "mal-yeux"—the evil eye. Hallmarked as 950 silver. Total length is 7-1/2", will fit up to a 7" wrist. Beads/seeds are 5-10mm. Closes with a toggle clasp.
