From the status symbol to the trendy accessory
During the 19th and into the 20th century, jewelry on Dirndl or the Trachten for men was a status symbol. With silver chains, massive pocket watches and above all the Charivari, people showed what they could afford. The famous Charivari needs explanation, especially for non-Germans.
The term has its origin in the Latin word "Caribaria", which means "confusion". It is a massive silver chain with different pendants. For men, you would have found hunting trophies such as
- small pieces of deer antlers
- badger teeth or the claws of raptorial birds
- coins and emblems
- gemstones or semi-precious stones
The Charivari should therefore make visible both the prosperity and the hunting success of men. Today, no real animal paws are hanging on modern Charivari, but metal replicas or just coins.
Women, too, wore and wear these jewelry chains. They are either worn as a necklace or attached to the bodice of the Dirndl. The material is mostly silver, and there are also coins, sometimes small pearls or even small pieces of antler hanging from it. In addition to these necklaces also the choker, mostly velvet with a small pendant, is a popular accessory for Dirndl wearers. Many Charivari owners wear their jewelry today not only with their Dirndl or Lederhosen, but also with jeans as a fashion accessory and a delightful combination of tradition and modernity.
If instead of a Charivari you prefer to wear other beautiful costume jewelry, you will find a large selection of inexpensive Trachten necklaces that make every Dirndl dress a unique eye-catcher.
