Berber women are known for their large, chunky pieces of jewelry, particularly those made with large colorful beads. These chunky bohemian earrings, handmade with silver and coral beads, are a lovely example. Extending about 2.5", they are a fabulous statement piece the style icon Iris Apfel would approve of.
Each piece arrives to you carefully packed with a card about its origin on the Silk Road.
This jewelry comes from the Berbers of North Africa. The Berber people are traditionally desert nomads who have lived in North Africa since pre-historic times. Women dominate many Berber communities and women in the Tuareg tribe ran their desert camps. Also known as “the blue people”, the Tuaregs wear indigo dyed robes, turbans, and veils that stain their skin blue. Berber jewelry is known for its heavy, beaten silver, colorful stones, and symbolism. Each piece has a purpose.
