Gerdan is a name for beaded necklaces that look like a narrow strip made of coloured beads, strung on a thread (often horsey thread) or fishing line, forming a colourful geometrical and sometimes floral ornament. Sometimes gerdans were either woollen strips or lace collars made of beads, which in Halychyna, Bukovyna and Transcarpathia women used to adorn the neck or head, and men - hats. Often gerdans are in the form of a loop made up of a continuous or openwork stripes of different width, which is put over the head and worn on the neck; the ends are connected with a locket in the front. The same decoration in different regions, even different villages, may have different names.
