The Tuaregs are a semi-nomadic Saharan people spanning Algeria, Mali, Niger Morocco, Tunisia and Nigeria. They are known for their silversmith work, which is exclusively silver. They are also known for their stunning blue (indigo) turbans.. Because they travel by camel, the Tuareg tend to use very simple, lightweight tools to create their jewelry - files, screwdrivers, nails, safety pins, for example.
These earrings are comprised of 925 sterling silver, for which most people do not exhibit sensitivity.
