This large Tuareg necklace is a unique find. Handmade, with simple engraving decorating the long design. Mid- and heavy-weight onyx beads interspersed with engraved silver tube beads lead to a hand-engraved silver alloy pendant. This interesting design mimics a dowsing rod, used to find water in the vast Sahara Desert. 

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.
