Onyx and Silver Diamond Earrings

$ 150.00

These beautiful silver and onyx earrings are handmade in Niger by the expert silversmiths of Tuareg Jewelry. The artists start with 99.99% pure silver and melt it down using a mold to form these earrings. Then they use a screwdriver and hammer for incising the intricate designs onto the silver. The Onyx and silver Diamond Earrings feature traditional motifs from Niger representing community life. The triangle shapes are a traditional symbol in Niger for good luck. The onyx and silver offer a stunning contrast from one another. The earrings are finished by sanding and polishing the silver for a brilliant finish.

“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
