Wedding Necklace

$ 350.00

The elegant Wedding Necklace is handcrafted in Niger by the master silversmiths of the Tuareg Koumama family collective. The artists start with 99.99% pure silver and melt it down to  form the intricate cross design. Engraving detail is added using only simple tools like the file and screwdriver. The necklace is accented with silver and onyx beads and the silver is sanded and polished for a stunning finish. The length eliminates the need for a closure, with the onyx beads continuing to the back. Lays comfortably at most necklines.  

In the Tuareg culture a man gives his wife this necklace on the third day of marriage to symbolize that the marriage is official. 

Dimensions: Necklace measures 28 inches long with the pendant measuring an additional 4 1/2 inches.

“Each piece of Tuareg jewelry helps provide the artisans with the blessings of food and culture and the wearer of the jewelry a sense of beauty and pride.” 
- Elhadji Koumama of Tuareg Jewelry, Niger
