Stunning hand carved silver Tuareg earrings from Morocco.
The Tuaregs are a tribe of the Berber people; traditionally desert nomads who have lived in North Africa since pre-historic times. Women dominate the Tuareg tribe and run 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.
