Function
Norigae pendant is one of the traditional Korean women's accessories. It was favored over necklaces and bracelets in Joseon Dynasty (1392 – 1910) and matured into distinct types. From women of high royal status to seniors and children of common status, norigae pendant was worn according to season and function, showing diversity in material, size and form. It enhanced the beauty of hanbok, the traditional Korean costume, by providing a visual focal point in the look and by achieving harmony with the color and the line. The traditional Korean sense of aesthetic can be discovered through the beauty of norigae pendant which brings unity of the whole.
