Tuareg jewelry is fashioned by the semi-nomadic Tuareg people in the Saharan desert. This tribe has been making symbolic, silver heirloom jewelry from 99.9% pure silver for centuries. This sterling silver chain holds one such special piece.
This silver crescent pendant is etched with a triangle and surrounded by a delicate zig zag. The triangular forms represent Tuareg tents which encompass families and therefore signify the unity of family. A zigzag pattern, such as on this, denotes the track of ants, which, during time of famine, the Tuareg will follow to the insects’ colonies to harvest grains of millet stored by the ants. A zig zag can also mean the winds of change.
This charming necklace is 17" long, the chain is sterling silver and the approximately 1" wide pendant is 99.9% pure silver and fair trade.
Please note: Due to the handmade nature of this product, the pendants vary slightly. The photo is a representation.
