Rolled Center Silver Cuff

$ 250.00

Master silversmith Elhadji and his Koumama family collective craft beautiful examples of traditional Tuareg jewelry in Niger. This classic rolled edge cuff begins from 99.9% pure silver melted and formed into a cuff then decorated by hand with symbols and patterns that represent the Tuareg community. The center X is often thought to represent protection for the wearer and a zig-zag pattern the road or path we travel. The triangle is also often seen and is a design for good luck. The bracelet is finished with hand sanding and polishing for a stunning sheen.

Measure slightly over 1 inch in width.


“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
