Product Description

The eye of the chameleon is symbolized by circular engravings on Tuareg jewelry. The primary spherical design of the selection before you focuses on the chameleon motif and its charms. It is believed that the chameleon possesses magical powers. A common traditional practice is to slaughter a chameleon and bury it in the foundation of a new building as a protection against the 'evil eye', or bad luck. Wives who fear that their husbands may be straying often resort to the use of concealed chameleon meat or bones in their husband's food in the belief that this will restore his fidelity! Various positive medicinal effects are also attributed to dried chameleon flesh and opinion has little changed for centuries. These sterling silver earrings both with intricate Tuareg markings have been highlighted with ebony wood ash outlines. The spiritual/talisamic property coupled with the delicate detailing of pure sterling silver makes this earring set one that will be positively commented on every time they are worn. These earrings were NOT mass produced in a factory outside of Africa like so many shamefully are today. This earring set was hand crafted, by a jeweler, in the country of Niger.
