Hinged Shield Silver Earrings

$ 150.00

Make a bold statement with these stunning Tuareg hinged shield earrings. Crafted from 99.9% pure silver, Elhadji and the Koumama family collective of silversmiths in Agadez Niger use simple tools like screwdrivers and files to free-hand engrave the jewelry with traditional motifs representing community life. The triangle top the earrings are suspended from is a classic Niger symbol representing good luck. The semi-circular shield drops gracefully from a hinged bar.

“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
