Abstract. In this article we consider a necklace in the Bukovina and Romanian complex jewelry of the XIX— XX centuries. The review of the literature indicates that the necklace of Northern Bukovina is insufficiently studied and requires artistic exploration, as well as less illuminated artistic features, stylistics, and morphology. Due to the remoteness of the region, Bukovina and Romanian necklaces did not become the subject of special researches.

Keywords: necklace, coral, pearls, Venetian necklace, glass necklace.
