Product Description

The Rahaida, which means refugee, live in the African countries of Eritrea and Sudan. In Sudan, they number about 70,000, and live mostly in the northeast part of the country on the outskirts of the city of Kassala. The Rashaida have kept their traditional dress, culture, customs, camel breeds and religion (Sunni Islam). The Rashaida are a nomadic people who live in tents made of goatskins. They are herdsmen, breeding primarily goats, sheep and camels. The racing camel breeds of the Rashaida tribe are prized all over Sudan and the Arabian Peninsula and garner very high prices. The men are excellent traders; distributing goods imported from Middle Eastern countries. Besides herding and breeding the Rashaida also gain income through jewelry making. It is the veiled Rashaida women who craft much of the silver jewelry sold in the Kassala souq, or market, which is said to be one of the best in Sudan. This beautiful ring features a persimmon colored agate stone which is atop in a tall African silver encasement that protrudes from a decorated silver band with tribal etchings. This is a very noticeable pronounce ring and a great find!
