Antique Banjara necklaces with old Indian coins from the Lambani tribe from the state of Karnataka. Lambani is a nomadic tribe native to the northwestern regions of India. They spread to various states in India after the fall of the Rajputs in Rajasthan. Most gipsy now live in north Karnataka. Traditional costumes are increasingly disappearing from the streets, the older women often still wear traditional costumes. The traditional costume of the Lambani gipsy is characteristic with the coarse jewelry and the many mirrors they wear on the clothing.
