Pretty tigers eye Touareg earrings that transport us back through the ages.
A stone of protection, Tigers Eye may also bring good luck to the wearer. It has the power to focus the mind, promoting mental clarity, assisting us to resolve problems objectively and unclouded by emotions. Particularly useful for healing psychosomatic illnesses, dispelling fear and anxiety.
These Touareg earrings are inspired by the ancient Touareg tribes of the Sahara Desert and these have the pretty etched markings on them, so characteristic of this style.
The desert nomads would travel from many African lands such as Niger, Algiers, Mali, Techad, Mauritania and Sudan to bring their wares for all to buy in the makeshift souks in the middle of the desert and other cities. One of the busiest routes was from Timbuktu to Marrakech.
These earrings with typical markings are handcrafted for us by talented artisans in Marrakech.
Earring drop is approximately 3.5 cm.
