Authentic Handmade African Tuareg Silver Ring hand made by Tuareg jewelers from Mali.
The traditionally nomadic Tuareg are a social group original to the Sahara desert. They are often called “the Blue People of the desert” due to the indigo dye they use on their garments that stains their skin.
Much of the Tuareg peoples’ cultural and artistic identity and resourceful and inventive spirit is expressed in their jewelry, as well as leather and metal saddle decorations and swords.
However, they have become known globally for their skill in jewelry making, primarily for their silver jewelry designs.
Each piece of Tuareg silver jewelry has special meaning.
Each piece contains a message and historical symbols, which are passed down from generation to generation.
They believe that silver is the metal of the prophet and, in fact, Tuareg women often have a superstitious fear of gold and will not wear it. Silver is a part of every family history, as it holds both symbolic and real value and is used for barter and trading.
We work directly with a team of silversmith artisans to bring you consistently high quality products from the Sahara in West Africa.
Every treasure of Altrove is unique and forever !
Ring size: 2 cm/ 0,78 inches
