Handmade jewelry presented by Foret: African Brass and Bone Earrings "Tribal Shields". This is a listing for brass African shield earrings with carved bone dangles. The African brass shield featured in these ethnic style earrings is a Tuareg type of design (the Tuareg are from North Africa.) The shield is engraved on both sides. Hanging from the bottom is a central carved bone with a geometric cut flanked by two black horn tubes. The decorative gold rounds and the earwires are 14k gold filled.

These surprisingly lightweight earrings make a slight jingling sound when they move. Traditionally, anything that jingles is always good for warding off malevolent spirits. These earrings have a pleasant sound which is soothing. If you like ethnic, tribal jewelry, then these will make a great addition to your collection.

Length from top of ear wire: 73mm
Diameter of shield: 27mm
