Tales of an Accessories Addict: Zulu Necklaces!

I have had this Zulu bead necklace for about 2 and a half years. I just wore it this week for the first time EVER! What took me so long?!? It’s so cute and I want MORE!! I think when I first received it, I was over thinking about how I should rock it so I set it aside. THEN I totally forgot I had it..lol It wasnt until I bought the necklace below from ASOS did I start thinking about my Zulu bead necklace. Clearly ASOS sought inspiration from Zulu bead necklaces.


My BFF got it for me in South Africa. It can be worn as a necklace or as a headpiece like the great and late South African singer Miriam Makeba .

Femmes Royales sells some lovely Zulu necklaces in their Akaye Collection. See some pics from this collection below.

This necklaceย  below really caught my eye because it’s so similar to the ZARA necklace I wanted last summer. I saw some ladies rocking it and as soon as I found out it was from ZARA, it was already sold out ๐Ÿ˜ฆ

Below is a picture of one of my FAV fashion bloggers Cynthia of Simply Cyn rocking the sold out ZARA necklace I wanted.

They look EXACTLY the same!! Loves it!

Solange and Kelis are Zulu inspired!

Would you rock a Zulu necklace?ย  Would you rock it as a headpiece like Miriam Makeba or as a necklace?ย 

Let me know in the comments and thanks for stopping by ๐Ÿ™‚

  1. I adore these necklaces, i dont see a lot of people wearing them and you know that’s always a good thing!! In fact, I totally forgot you could wear them as head pieces, I want one, I WANT ONE. it would give my TWA much pizzazz. The zulu necklace with the simple white vest and Poetic J Brainds just P O P S, great effortless summer look!
