Traditional Cuban Necklace Styles to Consider

Cuban necklaces have been worn for centuries by many different cultures. The reason is that they are a sign of purity and chastity. Traditionally, only women in Cuba have worn them, but today men also often wear them.

The five traditional styles of Cuban necklaces are the Milagrosa, the Duende, the Negro Curañao, the También and the Aguacate.

  • The Milagrosa necklace: The Milagrosa necklace is traditionally made from a crucifix or medallion with a loop on one end and a string or chain on the other. Whoever wears it can submit their wishes to God by tying the necklace onto the cross and crossing themselves. The necklace has been in existence since at least 1886, when it was noted by Emilio Aguinaldo, President of the Philippines, as having been worn by his mother. It was also noted to have been in use during Napoleon I's invasion of Spain in 1808. It is said that if you wear this necklace, your wishes will come true. 

  • The Duende necklace: The Duende necklace is traditionally made from two strings or chains with crosses or medallions dangling between them. The name Duende is derived from a Spanish word for the supernatural being of Andalusian folklore, which appeared in the form of an ugly and diminutive goblin who danced in dark mountain caves and forests to make people feel uneasy. This necklace is said to protect its wearer against the evil eye, ward off curses, and bring good luck. The Duende is also believed to give protection against illnesses such as colds or sore throats. In some regions, the Duende necklace was said to increase fertility.

  • Negro Curañao: These necklaces come from the island of Curañao and have a long history. They first became popular in the 17th century, when Spanish sailors who had been to Cuba brought them back. The Cuban Link Necklace is a handmade item traditionally made of gold or sterling silver wire. The design is a variation on the classic chain link necklace. One end is fixed to a bar that loops through and attaches to another loop on the opposite side near the top. The Cuban chain link was initially created by an American jeweller named Louis Comfort Tiffany in the late 1800s. Tiffany noticed that Cubans were making chains out of links that were not connected. Still, he wanted his chain links to be connected together so they would not fall apart. Thus, this new type of necklace became known as "Cuban Links.
