Tuareg Ring with Carnelian and Silver – the metal of the Prophet
Splendid and original Tuareg Ring – which can also be used as a pendant – in sterling Silver and Carnelian.
All Tuareg jewels are traditionally in silver – the metal of the Prophet – and not in Gold, considered the bearer of misfortune and bad luck.
The rings that bear a Carnelian are believed to possess the same powers of the ‘tanfouk’ pendants, which heal all wounds and can keep evil away. They carry a point shaped stone to reinforce this belief.
Very often these rings – usually worn by men – are used by women as a headdress.
