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. Tuareg 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 pendant and necklace motifs of our offering are unique to the Tuareg people and unique to our master jewelry smith. The hand cut circular silver design has been placed on a polished ebony wood background. The tree that ebony wood comes from offers wood that varies in color from a light tan to a dark rich brown-black shade. The wood hue darkens as it approaches the center core of the tree. The pendantsÂ’ wood grain displays the beauty of the natural color contrast. The entire pendant is enclosed within a silver casing and suspended upon a heavy black leather cord. This is a one of a kind selection!
