Vintage Silver Tuareg Ring, Berber Mosque Ring
A stunning ring made by Tuareg people of Mali in high-grade silver (tested). The extended part of the ring is said to be modelled on the tall architecturally stylish minarets of Mali. It features granulation work and geometric tribal motifs, also depictions of the evil eye, perceived as protection from danger. A solid unusual and eye-catching ring with good patina.
