Product Description

The Tuareg of the Sahara are referred to in the Bible as the original “Canaanites.” The Tuareg are descendents from an ancient race of people known as Berbers. Jewelry from the Sahara has been characterized by traditional protective symbolism. The fine etchings and associated beliefs are a collusion of Islam, West African animism and Christian ideologies. The tiny detailed insignia generally translates into words and phrases, empowered by God, which will protect the wearer. The metal itself, silver, is purported to be pure and to possess protective qualities. According to Tuareg belief silver is “the metal of the Prophet.” The unique pendant design of our offering is unique to the Tuareg people. This necklace is finely detailed and professionally crafted by Tuareg craftsman Omar Ibrahim Dakoro.  

The elegant pendant consists of a highly polished selection of fine, native sponge coral. Sponge coral has been used for a thousand s of years to decorate jewelry pieces and is regarded as having healing powers. The coral symbolizes life with red being the most sought after color.

The coral section is surmounted and partially encased by an elaborate abstract silver configuration. The pendant is suspended on a coral beaded necklace that is interspersed with 10 multifaceted silver beads with Tuareg detailed symbols. This is a very nice weighty, unique piece!

Dimensions: The pendant is 3 inches lomg x 1 7/8 inches across. The beaded chain is 10 inches long.
