Unusual Vintage Silver Tuareg Pendant Necklace

This old one-of-a-kind Tuareg pendant necklace was handcrafted in silver during the mid-1900's in Africa. The Tuareg are a widely dispersed nomadic tribal group living in Northern Africa. They have a unique culture with distinctive jewelry traditions that are among the most highly regarded in the world. 

The large silver pendant has a profuse number of  carefully aligned lines and etched patterns that represent creatures of great importance to the tribe - both human and animal. These symbols also hold amuletic properties, protecting the wearer and the wearer's tribe against adversity and the evil eye. 

It is a 3 part pendant with upper and middle portions hinged together and the lower portion consisting of 3 charm-dangles. All parts were sturdily made and do not bend.

The chain was made with black onyx beads interspersed with traditional Tuareg silver spacers. A simple clasp completes the back. The warm age patina has been polished, leaving a glow that only the passage of time can create.

This unique collectible Old African Tuareg necklace is in excellent condition. The artisan signed on the back with the traditional Tuareg hallmark.

About TUAREG: The African Tuareg consist of widely dispersed nomadic tribes known for their great noble bearing. They are said to refer to themselves as the "First People," claiming to have inhabited their region for eons, and well before all others - a claim, incidentally, that history supports. 

The Tuareg are undisputed masters of the desert, skillfully venturing with aplomb where others could not survive. Men and women hold equal rank with Tuareg society.
