The Tapahueso is a velvet or satin ribbon with a gold cross or medal, is used to cover the dimple of the throat, which is an aristocratic detail, very fashionable in Europe to decorate the neck of the ladies when they carry large cleavage.
The necklaces have beautiful works in burnished opaque gold, water-marked in different colors, with shapes of hearts, anchors, butterflies, etc ... These also can hold precious stones, pearls and filigree.
This gem is best to replace the velvet ribbon or black satin that is used with a cross or medal around the neck. It should be noted that the last was made to wear with the Pollera Montuna and its use is accepted for “Gala Polleras”.
