ABSTRACT
The article focuses on the traditions, costumes, and jewelry from the Greek island of Karpathos, located between Rhodes and Crete. According to the author, girls adorned with gold can be seen at weddings, baptisms, and on days of national, religious, or domestic family festivals. In some locations, certain jewels belong solely to the women of the family, and they are possessions which are not shared with the husband.
