One of the most iconic Tuareg cross designs, this Tuareg Agadez cross has a simple but well done design chased into it, with a stacked ebony and silver bottom in the unique Tuareg style.
Small onyx beads interspersed with embellished silver tube beads lead to the hand-engraved silver alloy pendant. You'll find the nice balance here of ebony and silver gives the necklace a nice weight and versatility.
The Tuareg originate from Mali, Algeria and Libya, but after travelling the Sahara Desert, a small group settled in the southern Moroccan Zagora province. Silver Sahara sources all our Tuareg items directly from descendants of the original settlers, ensuring that fair prices are paid.
