Material

silver alloy

Tuareg Tsabit or Tsabatine earrings in silver alloy. The Tuareg are a traditionally nomadic people who have lived throughout the Sahara for centuries. Tuareg jewelry is embellished with techniques that include chasing (engraving), repouse, and stamped designs.

Tuareg silver comes in various silver contents, these are not sterling, more of a coin grade metal with indeterminable silver content. The earrings are approx 10 gauge, (these are slightly smaller than 10g, but larger than 12g) 1 1/8" tall & weigh approx 8 grams each. They have the traditional faceted knobs, no incising on the ends of the knobs. As is the case with many nomadic people, jewelry helps define social status and prestige of the Tuareg women.

The Tuareg are a traditionally nomadic people who have lived throughout the Sahara for centuries. The Tuareg (also Twareg or Touareg, Berber: Imuhagh, besides regional ethnyms) are a Berber nomadic pastoralist people. They are the principal inhabitants of the Saharan interior of North Africa. The Tuareg people inhabit a large area, covering almost all the middle and western Sahara and the north-central Sahel.

The older tribal pieces have been worn & reflect years of loving use. You can expect worn fabric, an occasional missing bell, stone or coin, dings & dents. This patina is part of their attraction & beauty. These pieces have a wonderful folkloric look & are perfect for tribal belly dancers or accoutrements to wear at burning man or other festivals!

To preserve the patina of older ethnic jewelry, we do not clean or polish them. Pieces are sold with the intent of being utilized for collection, education and display purposes. Since the jewelry has been previously used, it is considered non-sterile. If you intend to wear these, you will be responsible for cleaning before use and wear only with well-healed tissue. Please note that if you have any metal allergies, many of these pieces contain nickel.

I have more traditional Tuareg pieces including more Tsabatine earrings. If you are interested in a specific gauge, please convo me. I have more in 14-6 gauge, mostly in the 10-8 gauge range. I have single tsabatine earrings in very large gauge that would be great worn as earrings or as pendants. I also have more Tribal belly dance Pieces available, please ask if you are looking for something in particular!

Earrings will be shipped via insured first class mail unless otherwise requested.

I am happy to combine shipping for multiple items! The combined shipping costs are based on the purchase of the same size items, so if you purchase a smaller item, the shipping will be less.
