This museum-quality antique Taureg necklace is a true find. Large pieces of true coral are interspersed with antique coins and sterling silver beads. The four strands meet on sides with beautifully decorated circular silver beads embellished with enamel. Entirely handmade, with hand-formed beads. Hook and eye closure.

More than 100 years old this true red coral, also known as precious coral, is very hard to find and no longer sold. This antique necklace comes from the small desert town of Zagora, Morocco, sourced directly from the original owner's Tuareg descendants.

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.
