Product Description

The Tuareg people are the original Canaanites from the Bible. The meaning of Canaan is 'land of the purple people.' This unusual moniker is in reference to the bluish-purple vegetable dye the Tuareg use to color their clothing that subsequently rubs off onto their skin. The Tuareg are renown for their metal and leather workings. The markings and geometrical design of Tuareg crosses and Tuareg jewelry in general translates into protective symbolism. "God is the center of the universe, we are one with God" and "no matter where you go God and I shall always be with you and protect you" are common Saharan interpretations. Those of the Muslim faith believe that the arms of the cross will disperse all evil from the individual. Thus keeping him out of harms way. Tuareg parents are known to give these exquisite crosses and beaded necklaces to their children when they are about to depart from home but they are worn by all as a form of good luck and protection. This large over sized cross is uniquely shaped and is named after the province of Agadez from which it originates. The hand crafted cross bears the Tuareg jewelers mark on its back. This selection was crafted by our jeweler in the country of Niger. The cross consists of a very good silver/nickel mix.
